A man has been arrested after more than 30 people were involved in a brawl in Seaview Road, Hemsby.

It comes after a fight broke out at half-time of the England - Russia game on June 11, shortly after 8.45pm.

Several people were injured and some required hospital treatment, and police issued a witness appeal asking to speak to anyone who saw a man leaving the scene in a white Ford Transit van.

A 30-year-old man from the Gorleston area has been arrested on suspicion of assault GBH, public order offences and possession of an offensive weapon and has been released on bail until Thursday 28 July 2016 while enquiries continue.

• Officers are still keen to speak with anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with information. DC Ricki Peake from Norfolk Police's Safeguarding Hub is the investigating officer and can be contacted on 101.
