Police appeal after Mousehold Heath arson attack

Police are hunting for arsonists after yet another blaze was started on Norwich's historic Mousehold Heath.

There have been a spate of fires on the heath in recent weeks and the latest happened last Friday, where two people set fire to the Rangers House, off Gurney Road.

The crime happened between 5.15pm and 5.25pm and Norfolk police have appealed for anyone who saw anything suspicious to get in touch.

Anyone who can help should call PC Debbie Bowers at Thorpe Hamlet Police Station on 0845 456 4567 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

As reported in the Evening News, there have been a string of fires deliberately started on the heath over the past month, which led to firefighters issuing a warning that people's lives were being put at risk.
