ARSONISTS who targeted police officers have today been convicted in an Ipswich court.

Jason Eagles, 22, and Angelo Debono, 31, were found guilty of two counts of arson with intent to endanger life after attacking police officers' homes in Clacton in January.

However the pair were found not guilty of attempted murder and another man was cleared of all counts when they appeared at Ipswich Crown Court.

Sentencing will now take place after a report has been prepared on the duo.
