The two teenagers charged with arson following a fire at a Norwich community centre are set to stand trial later this summer.

The two 15-year-old boys, who cannot be named for legal reasons, are accused of causing the blaze at the Phoenix Centre, in Mile Cross Road, on December 15 which led to £100,000 of damage.

One of the boys had previously pleaded not guilty to arson and a trial was fixed for June 27 after the defence solicitor representing the second youth today indicated to magistrates at Norwich Youth Court that he too was pleading not guilty.

Both of the teenagers have been released on conditional bail until their trial which is expected to last a day.
