A teenager arrested after a satanic image was left at the altar of a church has been released on bail.

Fires were also lit inside St Mary's Catholic church, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, on Tuesday.

CCTV footage showed a man lighting the fires before trying to burn a sacred icon from the altar and replacing it with a picture of a satanic figure.

A 17-year-old arrested on Thursday on suspicion of criminal damage has been bailed until 18 April.
