Scotland Yard is investigating a suspected arson attack that took place at the Houses of Parliament, The Mail on Sunday has discovered.
Detectives believe a fire that broke out close to offices in the southern end of the House of Lords may have been started deliberately.
They are also looking at a series of other incidents involving damage to computers during the recess, when most MPs are away on holiday. The investigation has prompted fears that a vengeful employee may be waging a campaign of criminal damage.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: 'Police are investigating other incidents of damage in the same building, but are yet to determine if these are linked to the fire.'
