“A suspected petrol bomb attack on an asylum seeker centre is being treated as a race-hate crime.
A flaming object was flung at a front window of multi-occupancy flats in Aintree , in the early hours of Sunday morning, shattering the glass.
Police attended the address on Church Avenue just before 2am and found fire damage to the front of the property, which used to operate as the Bounty House hotel, close to Aintree Racecourse.
Now it has emerged detectives suspect the arson is racially motivated.
Locals said a variety of asylum seekers, from different countries, lived at the 15-bed centre.
An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of arson over the weekend and is being quizzed by police on suspicion of committing arson with intent to endanger life.”
Whoever this man is, he is a hero.
