A WOODBRIDGE business was still closed today following an arson attack which severely damaged its premises.

Police believe the arson attack at the Turban Centre was started deliberately and it was only due to the prompt action of the fire service which prevented devastation.

Nicola Fisk, who works at Finch's fruit and Vegetable shop in Hamblin Road, said: "The shop is closed at the moment and we are not open for business.

"We can't get in the shop for the time being because the whole of the ceiling has collapsed, however, we are still taking orders and delivering produce to the pubs."

More than 35 firefighters from Woodbridge, Felixstowe and Ipswich tackled the blaze which broke out at the town's Turban Centre at about 8.45pm on Saturday.

A Suffolk Police spokeswoman said: "Obviously we are still treating the fire as arson and we are appealing for witnesses.
