A man has been arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated offence against a hospital worker.
The man, in his mid-40s, was arrested at an address in Middleton, near King’s Lynn, at around 4am today.
Police tweeted: “4am door knock resulted in male being arrested for an outstanding Public Order offence against NHS worker. #24/7policing.”
A spokesman later said the man was arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence which happened in September.
He said it happened during a meeting at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Lynn, when a volunteer manager was racially abused and shouted at.
A man is still in custody at Lynn Police Investigation Centre this afternoon.
Elsewhere in West Norfolk in the early hours police seized a Ford Focus which was being driven by an unlicensed driver near The Walks on Tennyson Road, in King’s Lynn.
