Norfolk Police were called on Wednesday morning (December 18) at 5.15am to reports a Ford Transit van was on fire on Briar Close in Lingwood.

One fire engine from Carrow went to the scene and crew spent an hour putting out the blaze.

Police have said the van was completely burned out and the fire is being treated as arson.

Officers have already been making house to house enquiries in the area this morning and investigations continue.

The van has not yet been removed from the scene, as it was too hot, police said.
