Norwich A level students urged to celebrate safely on results day

Police have warned A level students celebrating their results later this week to make sure they remember the night for the right reasons.

Thousands of students are expected in the city on Thursday and officers have urged them to celebrate safely, by knowing their limits and taking precautions to prevent a good night turning bad.

As reported, police revealed that organised criminal groups were targeting nightclubs in the city to steal mobile phones, and officers are warning young people to make sure phones and handbags are not left on tables or bars by accident.

Inspector Edward Brown, from Norfolk Constabulary's Community Safety team, said: 'This will be a very important day for thousands of young people across the county who have worked hard over the last two years to achieve their results.

'We want students to go out, celebrate and enjoy themselves but be sensible and to make it a night to remember for all the right reasons.'

Police advice includes celebrating responsibly; remaining with friends and planning journeys home; carrying identification; and drinking water to pace alcohol intake.

Insp Brown added: 'Being drunk is no excuse for criminal or anti-social behaviour: a criminal record does not look good on your college or university application.'
