Police are appealing for help after a man was seen setting fire to a patch of grass on Great Yarmouth beach.

It happened near to the Waterways café on North Drive on Friday when a man wearing a red and black t-shirt was seen by a member the public lighting a fire.

Fire crews were called to help put out the flames.

Investigating officer PC Gary May said: “The alarm was raised by the member of the public who informed the café owner, who then dialled 999 for the fire service.

“Unfortunately the person who witnessed the incident left the scene prior to officers arriving and we’d be keen to speak with them as they could hold important information in relation to the suspect.”
