Emergency services were called to a blaze at the Ivy Hall student halls of residence in Cricklewood Lane at 6.30am on August 9.

The fire was started when a dark coloured coat was set alight at the base of an air vent at the student accommodation, police said.

There were no injuries, but minor damage was caused to the building, which is part of Middlesex University.

One CCTV still shows the man, wearing a dark coloured coat, on Cricklewood Lane minutes before the fire started.

The second CCTV still shows the same man, without the coat, watching the fire burn, police said.

The suspect is a white man of slim build, aged in his mid 20s with short brown hair.

Officers said he appears to have a deformity to his right arm, and may be missing one or more of the fingers of his left hand.

Anyone who knows the identity of the man shown should call Barnet CID via 101.

Calls can be made anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
