A probe into suspected arsons at a number of postboxes in Thorpe St Andrew has been closed due to a lack of evidence, police have said.

An investigation was launched by officers after several Royal Mail postboxes in Plumstead Road East, Henby Way and St Williams Way had their contents damaged by fire in the last few months, in what was believed to be incidents of arson.
