Extra police patrols are being carried out in a seaside town in Norfolk after a spate of arson attacks.

In the latest incident a glass bottle containing flammable liquid was thrown at a property in Albemarle Road in the early hours of Saturday 22 September causing a fire which the occupant quickly extinguished.

Police are linking the incident to an arson at a property in High Road when the front window of an address was smashed and the internal blinds were set on fire.

A vehicle was also set on fire in Pine Green. No one was injured.

Police are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity or has any information.
