A 15-year-old boy has been arrested after vehicles were damaged in three Norwich streets in a spate of vandalism.

Norfolk police confirmed they had been called to numerous reports of damaged vehicles in Silver Street, Mousehold Street and Aylsham Road, in the north of the city, this morning (Tuesday, July 16).

While police have not said how many vehicles were damaged, people who live in the area have said at least six cars and a motorcycle in Silver Street were damaged overnight.

The damage included tyres being slashed and wing mirrors being pulled off, they said.

A spokeswoman for Norfolk police said: "Officers were called a number of incidents of damaged vehicles in the NR3 area of Norwich, in Mousehold Street, Silver Street and Aylsham Road.
