LONDON - A suspected arson gang put Jade Goody’s widower Jack Tweed’s new Essex bar on fire just hours after the reality show ‘The only way is Essex’ was filmed at the venue.
The bar, called Deuces, was meant to officially open last night near Chigwell, Essex but in the early ours of the morning a brick was hurled through a window, which torched the bar.
It took ten firefighters to overcome the blaze after a 999 call.
Police sources believe arsonists may have targeted the bar in a turf war between gangs and cops are treating the blaze as ’suspicious’. We think it is maybe a gang that has targeted other bars in the Essex area. We believe it could be part of a gangland territory war,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.
Jack, 23, who used ill words against Indian actress Shilpa Shetty in ‘Big Brother’ 2007, had earlier Tweeted how he was ‘buzzing’ about the bar opening.
Best pal Mark, 23, from Brentwood, also bragged about the bar on the hit ITV2 show however, after the incident he said, “I am extremely disappointed. Jack is gutted.”
They plan to open the bar next week. (ANI)
