Staff and customers were evacuated and the blaze put out with a fire extinguisher.

A fire investigation concluded it was started deliberately.

Police would like to trace the man in the image as they believe he may have information that could assist the investigation.

PC Thomas Griffith, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We have launched an arson investigation following this incident and would now appeal to the public for information.

“Thankfully this fire was contained and no injuries were sustained.

“Deliberately starting a fire is absolutely unacceptable. The consequences can be devastating and we will work with our colleagues at the fire service to fully investigate reports of arson and bring offenders to justice.

“We would urge anyone with information to get in touch with Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident 357 of 1 March 2022.”
