Just 25 minutes later, a second man was stopped on Rosary Road for kerb crawling and has been called in for an official interview.

The arrests come as police continue Operation Bunwell, a campaign which has seen plain clothed officers deployed in the Rosary Road area of Norwich to deter kerb crawlers.

Sergeant Mark Shepherd, head of the Norwich East Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: "Great work tonight in relation to OpBunwell19 in the Rosary Road area of Norwich."
