Officers attended a second incident shortly before 10.30am at Lynn Road in Downham Market where a car was stolen during a knife-point robbery.

Daniel York, 20 of London Road, Lynn, has been charged with two counts of robbery, one count of possession of a bladed article, one count of driving whilst disqualified and using a motor vehicle without insurance.

He will appear at Norwich Magistrates Court tomorrow morning (January 12).
