Two 15-year-olds have been charged with arson after a fire badly damaged a children's charity in Mile Cross.

Firefighters were called to the Phoenix Children's Project Centre in Mile Cross Road on Saturday 15 December after reports of a fire.

The flames were put out but the fire caused considerable damage to the building. No one was inside at the time.

Two 15-year-old boys were arrested on suspicion of arson the day after the fire and both have now been charged with the offence.

The teenagers, who cannot be named for legal reasons, have been released on conditional bail to appear before Norwich Youth Court on Thursday 31 January.
