ARSONISTS have set fire to a derelict Dudley town pub.

The incident involved a severe fire in the ground floor front room of the two storey empty building, with 100 per cent of the room engulfed in flames.

Amazing the pub was left not boarded up for 2 years and there was no vandalism. But since it has been sold and planning permission for the building to be made into a home for disabled people all of a sudden it starts getting vandalised, set on fire and become a general nuisance to locals and the police and fire service. Coincidence by any chance ?? I think
NOT !!!!
