A 24-year-old woman has been arrested and charged after abusing Tesco staff and shoppers.

Police were called to Langley Road, in South Wootton, at around 2.50pm on Saturday after a woman was reported to have abused store workers and customers waiting in the queue outside.

The woman, of no fixed address, was arrested and taken to King’s Lynn Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

 She was later charged with using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour causing harassment, alarm or distress.

A police spokesman said the woman was bailed to appear at Lynn Magistrates’ Court next month.
