It's the latest in a line of incidents at the old curry house, which had a £190,000 cannabis factory inside until police found it last month.

Two weeks ago police were called back to the closed restaurant after a man broke in before having a snooze inside.

A police spokesman said: "The cause of the fire is still being investigated."

Witnesses or anyone with information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
