In an appeal for information, police have released CCTV images of three men who are suspected of committing arson at an Islamic Centre in Harlow, Essex, reports the BBC in the article 'Harlow Islamic Centre Arson CCTV Released by Police' on August 28. The building suffered limited damage, despite insulation foam being sprayed around doors and windows before the building was set on fire.

According to the BBC, the CCTV image, which sees two men at the centre at 1:24am on Monday 26th August, is believed to show one man holding a drill, with another holding a canister of foam.

“It is clear from the CCTV footage this was a premeditated attempt to cause serious damage to the Islamic centre.
