Norfolk Police say they are continuing their investigations into the three arson attacks in Gorleston which took place in the early hours of Saturday morning.

It believes the arsons were targeted attacks but one of them may have been made at the wrong address.

The first took place on Albemarle Road at 12.20am, followed by the second at 12.30am on High Road and the final one on Pine Green at 12.45am.

Police have also made an appeal to anyone who may have dash cam footage from Albemarle Road, High Road, Pine Green or High Street from 11.30pm to 1am that night.

Chief inspector of Great Yarmouth police, Nathan Clark, said: “We are particularly interested in a small silver car which we believe was involved and may have been seen driving erratically around the time of the incidents.”
