Twenty-two people were arrested across the county as nightclubs welcomed party-goers back since the start of the pandemic.

Six people were arrested in King’s Lynn for drunk and disorderly offences last Saturday night.

Superintendent Nathan Clark said: “Venues in King’s Lynn and Norwich were particularly busy and there were some long queues, and unfortunately, some arrests. However, in the main and given the number of people that were out and about on Saturday evening, people enjoyed themselves in a safe and responsible way.

“It was particularly pleasing to see clubs and pubs being well managed and their owners or licensees working closely with officers to keep everybody safe; this collaboration makes such a difference at a time when we’re experiencing such an increase in demand.”

Police thanked licenced premises and late-night venues for their cooperation.
