A two vehicle blaze in Gorleston over the weekend was set deliberately, it has emerged.

On Saturday evening, between 9pm and 9,15pm two vehicles were set alight in Riverside Road, which took eight firefighters to extinguish.

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. This incident took place between 7pm and 7.15pm on Saturday, March 18.

Police have appeal for witnesses to both arson attacks, which are thought to be directly linked to one another.

Officers are keen to speak to anybody who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area on the consecutive Saturday evenings.
