A DEVASTATED youth centre volunteer was considering quitting today following a second arson attack at his Great Yarmouth youth centre in four months.

Sombre Newtown Youth Centre secretary Carl Harding was once again forced to survey a scene of devastation at the Jellicoe Road centre after arsonists attacked the building early at 6am today, destroying much equipment donated following the last fire.

The attack has thrown into jeopardy plans to erect a new portable building in place of the current dilapidated converted ship container, funded with a �50,000 grant from ITV's People's Millions lottery fund.
