A car that had been abandoned in the middle of a field in north Norfolk has been set on fire.

The car, which was abandoned in a field in Alby with Thwaite just off the A140, was found upside down and on fire at 11.53am on Thursday, January 2.

Norfolk Police have said the incident, which involves a car that had been in a crash on December 23, is being treated as arson.

A passerby spotted blue smoke billowing from the car and called the emergency services.

A fire crew from Aylsham attended the fire at 12.08pm wearing breathing apparatus and used hose reel jets to extinguish the fire.

They also used a thermal imaging camera to check for hot spots before leaving the scene at 12.31pm.

Norfolk police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the fire.
