Suffolk Police arrested the man on Thursday, February 18, on suspicion of criminal damage and arson not endangering life.

He was taken to Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre for questioning, and was later released under investigation pending further enquiries.

On February 2, bins were set alight in the Hillside Road West area of the town, and in the Queen's Road area days later on February 7.

Three earlier incidents, all in the Queen's Road area, had also been reported on December 6 last year.
