Norfolk Police believe the three arson attacks which took place in Gorleston in the early hours of Saturday morning were targeted attacks.

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.

Chief inspector of Great Yarmouth police, Nathan Clark, said: “We have been moving on with our investigations today and we believe the arsons were targeted attacks rather than random arsons.

“We also believe one of the attacks might have been at the wrong address.”

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.

Mr 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.”

Contact Det Con Gavin Rivett at Great Yarmouth CID on 101 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
