Mile Cross Phoenix Centre arsonists sentenced

  • 7-31-2013

Two teenage boys have been sentenced for setting fire to a children's centre.

The boys, aged 15 and 16, were found guilty of arson last month after causing damage estimated at £100,000 to the Phoenix Centre in Norwich.

Both were given 12-month rehabilitation orders including a year's supervision and 60 hours activity requirement.

They were each ordered to pay £200 in compensation to the trustees of the centre in Mile Cross.

Each boy was also ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge at Norwich Youth Court.

The roof and several of the community rooms were badly damaged in the fire on 15 December.

The property, refurbished after volunteers helped raise £500,000 to buy it in 2006, was empty at the time of the blaze.
