Armed police were called to Norwich train station following reports of a man armed with a knife.

Officers arrested a man in his late 40s yesterday (Sunday) on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon and public order offences.

Police were initially called out to the Norwich Road area of Rackheath, north east of the city, shortly after 5.30pm.

But a police spokesperson said enquiries led to armed officers relocating to Norwich train station.

Norfolk Constabulary said the man had been taken to Wymondham Police Investigation Centre for questioning, where he remains in custody.
