But despite the huge numbers of people out and about throughout Norwich and Norfolk, police had a relatively quiet night dealing with incidents.

A police spokesman said the night-time economy in Norfolk saw a busy evening but only one arrest made in connection with an assault on Prince of Wales Road. The number of anti-social behaviour incidents reported on the evening was 42, compared to 65 last year.

Three people were taken to hospital after inhaling smoke after the fire service was called to Mantra Club and Lounge on Prince of Wales Road during the All Hallow's Eve celebrations.
