The fire was started deliberately, a spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said, and anyone with information should contact police by visiting to submit an online report, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

The derelict pub was also set on fire in March last year.

That fire was also said to have been started deliberately.
