Hermitage plant nursery fire treated as suspicious

A fire at a plant nursery in Berkshire is thought to have been started deliberately.

Police started investigations after crews reported the blaze just before 03:00 GMT at Woodside Farm Nursery in Hermitage, near Newbury.

Two crews from Newbury tackled the blaze in a two-storey wooden building but about a quarter of it was destroyed.

Nobody was hurt and fire crews left the scene around 05:30.
