A former girl guide hut was damaged by fire after being deliberately set alight.

Firefighters believe the derelict wooden building, previously used as the old guide hut in Wissett Road, Halesworth, was targeted by arsonists in the early hours of Christmas Day.

Crews from Halesworth and Bungay were called to the scene just after 4am. They arrived to find the 5m by 12m building alight but were able to bring the flames under control by 5.45am.
