Great Yarmouth was quick to show its support to the arcade traders who have lost their livelihoods by setting up an on-line donation page.

As the town woke to the devastating news a Crowdfunding page saw people post messages of condolence and donating what they could.

The page is looking to raise £1000 to help the people who have lost their businesses in the indoor market, and those nearby that have been affected.

Sammi Hallam who has set up the page urged the community to 'pull together to help these lovely people out' who had 'literally lost everything.'

The 25-year-old of Kent Road, Lowestoft, said her partner's parents used to have a unit at the market, adding: 'The other traders are so lovely and generous themselves, they have lost so much and I want to give something back.'
