A MAN has been arrested following a suspected arson attack on a property while two children and their mother were inside.

The fire was started in a brick shed attached to the house in Five Acres, London Colney, on Sunday morning at around 9.35am.

Firefighters quickly got the blaze under control and prevented it from spreading into the house, although the shed was destroyed.
