A short time later at 3.50pm suspects went to City Hall on St Peters Street and threw pink paint over the main bronze doors.

Police arrested two women in connection with the incidents on suspicion of causing criminal damage.

The bronze doors of city council headquarters - a Grade II*-listed building - depict the history, trade and industry of Norwich.
