The woman, in her late teens, called police at around 10.30pm last night, Wednesday, claiming she had been mugged in Canterbury Way.

A spokesman for Norfolk Police said the claims were thought to be a hoax and that the woman has been arrested.

A message on Facebook warning young women not to walk in the Abbey Estate was sent out following the alleged hoax call.

She remains in custody.
