The owner of a garage and cab company which has been hit by two arson attacks in as many weeks has spoken out after his business was targeted.
Roland Kitchen, 57, of Autotune Service and Repair and Ocean Cabs, said: 'We had a fire in the shop that was put down to an accident but now I think it wasn't.'
Last Saturday, between 9pm and 9.15pm, two parked vehicles were set alight in Riverside Road, which took eight firefighters to put out.
In total four vehicles were destroyed by the flames.
It comes exactly a week after a blue Volkswagen camper van was also set alight while parked on the side of the same Gorleston road.
