A fire at a former mental health hospital is being treated as suspected arson.

Fire ripped through Little Plumstead Hall, near Norwich, on Sunday.

These dramatic aerial images reveal the extent of the damage to the 19th Century building, which is now being demolished.

It had been Little Plumstead Hospital but had been derelict since the 1990s. Police said they believed the fire was started deliberately.
