It's thought a fire at a vacant building in East Belfast was started on purpose.

The blaze destroyed the premises on the Holywood Road last night.

Police and crews from the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service were sent in just before 9pm.

A spokesperson for the PSNI said:

"Sergeant Anne McCourt would appeal to anyone who has any information which may assist with enquiries to contact Police at Strandtown PSNI Station, on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 1383 09/05/17. 

"Alternatively, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111."
