Safer Summer Staycation

People who enjoyed the re-opening of many bars, restaurants, cafes and hotels on what has been dubbed as “super Saturday” have been praised by police for acting sensibly and safely.

After more than three months in lockdown, many hospitality premises re-opened their doors in West Norfolk.

In response, Norfolk Police had extra officers on duty in the county, but said no significant issues had been reported and no arrests were made in King’s Lynn.

A spokesman said police dealt with a “handful of incidents” and officers had made six arrests for offences of drunk and disorderly and assault – four at Marina Parade in Great Yarmouth and two in Caister. 

Chief Superintendent Dave Marshall said: “We had sufficient resources in place and additional officers on duty to make sure pub-goers enjoyed themselves safely. 

“We responded to a handful of incidents relating to assaults and disorder inside premises but overall people were well behaved and the day passed without major incident.”
