By Gerry Warren

Police have launched an arson probe after a new barbers shop was destroyed in an early-morning blaze today.

The fire ripped through what is soon to be Best Cuts in St Dunstan’s Street, Canterbury, at 3.30am, badly damaging the three-storey building.

Crews wearing specialist breathing equipment spent more than an hour tackling the flames, which gutted a ground-floor shop being kitted out for the barbers.
