Police have revealed they made 14 arrests during the weekend’s two-day Sundown Festival and seized a “large number” of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) cans.
Police said the festival, at the Norfolk Showground, passed without major incident.
But arrests were made for assault, drugs, public order and motoring offences.
Five people were arrested in connection with minor assaults.
Three people were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs.
Three people were arrested in connection with public order offences.
Two people were arrested for being drunk and disorderly.
One person was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs.
Several items of property, such as phones and other personal items, were handed in to the police and security across the weekend and officers will be carrying out enquiries this week to reunite them with their owners.
Chief Inspector Stuart Armes, policing commander, said: “While a number of arrests were made, the policing operation was a success and the event passed peacefully with no major incidents and the majority of festival-goers enjoying the atmosphere.”
