A 19-year-old man has been arrested in Reading after a petrol bomb was thrown through a pub window.

The Molotov cocktail smashed through glass at the Lord Campbell pub in Alexander Road, Aldershot, at around 4:30am on April 1st.

Fortunately it failed to ignite, although four people were evacuated as a precaution.

Neighbours told the Wokingham News they believed the attack was motivated by homophobia.

The man, from Arborfield, has been released on bail until Thursday May 14th.

Anyone with information about the incident should call Aldershot CID on 0845 045 4545 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
