Police are linking an arson attack on a car with a theft which occurred just 20 minutes earlier in Norwich.

A red Volkswagen Golf was broken into and set on fire at around 9.30pm on Saturday, October 28, while parked near The Whalebone pub on St Clements Hill.

Twenty minutes earlier, at 9.10pm, food was stolen from the Cop-operative food store on Sprowston Road.

Police believe both incidents are linked and are appealing for witnesses or information.

It is not known if anything was stolen from the car. However, its interior was set alight, causing extensive damage, police said.

Anyone with information should contact PC Dan Oakenfold at Hurricane Way Police Station on 101.

Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
