Sir Oliver Heald welcomes news that Royston Church fire was not arson.

Commenting he said

“I am relieved that the police have now confirmed that this was not an arson attack. The Church is a very special place for local people in the run up to Christmas. I had lit the Christmas Tree lights the week before with a large group there. Although it is still very sad the Church has been the victim of fire, I know many people will also be glad like me that this was not deliberate.”
