Fire crews from Great Yarmouth, Gorleston, Acle, Martham and Lowestoft, along with an aerial ladder platform, were called to the premises in Swanstons Road at 1am on Saturday. Wearing breathing apparatus they used main jets and hand appliances to extinguish the blaze and stop the fire from spreading to surrounding buildings. Police said offenders broke into the unit s office block and set fire to it, causing extensive damage.

Anyone with information should call DC Gavin Rivett at Great Yarmouth CID on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
