UK police investigate possible arson attack at office of pro-Israel MP

London’s Metropolitan Police are investigating a suspected arson attack at the north London office of Conservative MP Mike Free after a fire spread on Christmas Eve, authorities announce.

Freer represents the constituencies of Finchley and Golders Green, home to one of London’s largest Orthodox Jewish communities. He has been an outspoken critic of Hamas in the wake of the brutal October 7 onslaught in southern Israel.

The fire is being treated as a possible arson attack, and Freer says it’s just “one of the many threats” he’s faced in recent weeks, according to local media.

Freer was not in the office at the time of the fire and nobody was injured, police say.
