  1. Would be interesting to know what the 16 year old boy has to say about his actions on that day …

    • The boy didn’t get any charge until Tuesday from Saturday that means he didn’t accept on that day :
      ‘..The teenager was arrested on the day after the fire but was not charged until Tuesday.
      He has been bailed and is due to appear at Wimbledon Youth Court on January 18.
      A second boy, also 16, was released with no further action.’
      Also, he attacked the mosque last December, not this one. Today is the first of January 2017
      Happy new year
