A 28-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of arson in connection with an attack on an Essex Islamic Centre.

The building suffered limited damage. Police are looking for two men caught on CCTV security cameras.

The men were filmed at 01:24 BST on Monday and anyone with information is asked to come forward.

The centre was set up 18 years ago and now serves about 2,000 Muslims.
