A 19-year-old man has been arrested in Reading after a petrol bomb was thrown through a pub window.

The Molotov cocktail smashed through glass at the Lord Campbell pub in Alexander Road, Aldershot, at around 4:30am on April 1st.

Neighbours told the Wokingham News they believed the attack was motivated by homophobia.

The man, from Arborfield, has been released on bail until Thursday May 14th.
