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

The man, from Harlow, is being questioned by police about the incident in the early hours of Monday 26 August.

Police said insulation foam was sprayed around the doors and windows at the Harlow Islamic Centre on Paringdon Road and then set on fire.

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.
