Former Carlisle United striker Gary Madine has been arrested over a suspected arson in Gateshead.

The 20-year-old, now with League One rivals Sheffield Wednesday, was questioned by police over a fire at a property in Rutland Square on 19 May.

Northumbria Police said no-one had yet been charged and investigations were ongoing. No-one was hurt in the fire.

Mr Madine, who scored 22 goals in 88 appearances for Carlisle, has been bailed until 18 July.

He moved to Sheffield Wednesday earlier this year for an undisclosed fee.
