Arsonist leaves his jeans at crime scene
A police investigation was under way today to trace an arsonist who left his trousers at the scene of a blaze.
Officers in Leamington, Warwickshire, said a pair of men's jeans were recovered from a fire on a sports court in the Whitnash area of the town last night.
A Warwickshire Police spokeswoman said: "Amongst the items left burning on the court was a pair of men's jeans, indicating that one of the offenders may have gone home without his trousers."
Appealing for witnesses who may have spotted the half-naked arsonist, the spokeswoman said: "Do you know who it is?
"Did a member of your family return home last night without his trousers or did you see anyone walking through Whitnash only partially dressed?"
