Two boys arrested over Norwich children's centre blaze

Phoenix Children's Project Centre Police are appealing for witnesses to the fire at the children's centre

Two teenagers have been arrested after a charitable centre for children was severely damaged by fire.

Firefighters were called to The Phoenix Children's Project Centre in Mile Cross, Norwich, at about 22:00 GMT on Saturday.

Police said two 15-year-old boys had been arrested and released on bail.

The fire service said it caused "extensive damage" to the property, refurbished after volunteers helped raise £500,000 to buy it in 2006.
