Arsonists set fire to bins in Yarmouth town centre

ARSONISTS attacked three bins in Great Yarmouth town centre in the space of twenty minutes today.

Police are looking to link two incidents on King Street and Regent street, at 4.35pm and 4.50pm respectively.

The first saw two wheelie bins set alight on King Street, firefighters from Great Yarmouth used hose reel jets and put out the fire in three minutes.

The second saw a recycling skip outside the Poundstretcher store on Regent's Street set alight.
