PART of an Ulverston pub has been closed following an arson attack.

The outside shelter at The Sun has been closed after a section of the beer garden was set on fire.

In a Facebook post bosses said: "Unfortunately our under cover section of the beer garden will be closed this evening due to criminal damage.

"A customer has poured flammable liquid through the cover and into the open flame, causing the entire surround to set on fire.

"We are now looking at CCTV footage of the incident; and apologise in advance for any inconvenience this causes to our other customers."
