The racist are really coming out of the woodwork after the terror attack in Woolwich. Two people have been arrested on suspicion of arson following a fire at an Islamic cultural centre in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. CCTV appears to show three petrol bombs being thrown over the gate of the building on Weelsby Road.
Sky's North of England Correspondent Gerard Tubb, who has seen the footage, said they hit a door, wall and rubbish bin.
"A man then rushed out of the mosque and through the flames before grabbing a fire extinguisher to put the blaze out," he said.
Diler Gharib, chairman of the mosque, told the Grimsby Telegraph: "We had just finished our prayers and were discussing how to thank our neighbours for the support they have shown us over the past few days when we heard a bang and saw fire coming under the door.
"I grabbed a fire extinguisher and put it out and then two more petrol bombs hit the fire escape and the bin so I had to put those out too."
The mosque was targeted last week when a brick was thrown through a window, shattering a pane of glass that fell onto a sofa below.
There had been a police presence around the building and an officer arrived moments after the fire was extinguished.A spokesman for Humberside Police said no one was injured in the fire.
