Holy Pitta, opposite Islington Green, went up in flames in the early hours of this morning. It has remained taped off today with forensics officers combing the burnt-out shop for evidence.

The takeaway was closed at the time of the blaze, but medics treated a man and a woman at the scene.

Officers were called just before 2.10am and Scotland Yard say an arson investigation has been launched. No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information concerning this incident is requested to call police on 101 quoting reference CAD503/5Feb. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
