Police are re-appealing for information after a restaurant was set on fire in an arson attack last month.

Officers now believe that more than one person started a fire at Malik’s Restaurant in Cookham in the early hours of December 6, which resulted in seven people being forced to flee the flames through the upstairs windows.

Six men and one woman were in the property above the High Street restaurant at around 1.45am when it was set alight.

One of the men, aged in his twenties, suffered a serious leg injury and was taken to Wexham Park Hospital for treatment.

The others received treatment at the scene.

Investigating officer Det Con Rachel Kluger, from Maidenhead Force CID, said: "We are continuing to investigate this serious incident which could have resulted in far worse injuries to those in the property at the time.

“Several of the injured people jumped to the ground from the first and second floor windows to escape the smoke and this was obviously a highly distressing incident for them. I would still encourage anyone with information about what happened to contact police.

"We still believe this was a fire targeted at this business and we now believe more than one offender was present at the scene and started the fire. The local community may hold the key to helping us to establish who was responsible."

Anyone with any information can call the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101.
