Three youths are being questioned over damage and attacks.

Police say five offences happened on the town’s Fairstead Estate overnight. They included one of criminal damage and four assaults.

Insp Wesley Hornigold, of King’s Lynn police said: “We have made three arrests this afternoon, all three males aged 15, 16 and 16 in relation to matters linked to overnight and they are currently being held at Kings Lynn police investigation centre.

“For the next three nights, I have five special constables working late shifts, giving up their time to provide reassurance to the community on the Fairstead Estate and I have four officers working to both investigate offences and prevent further instances of anti-social behaviour.

“I’d like to thank the community for all of their assistance in respect of this matter and we will continue to robustly investigate these matters.”
