Nine people were arrested after a night of 'assaults and disorderly behaviour' in King's Lynn.

They included a woman who had to be subdued with a pepper spray after attacking officers.

Revellers have returned to Norfolk Street and other areas of Lynn town centre with lockdown easing and customers allowed inside pubs and bars to drink.

But some took their celebrations too far as temperatures soared on Sunday.

Police tweeted: "Extremely busy night in King's Lynn Town centre with nine arrests made for a variety of assaults and disorderly behaviour."

In Norwich, officers have been promoting a public space protection order, which gives them additional powers to tackle anti-social behaviour.

They tweeted:" We don't want to dampen spirits, but please drink responsibly and help keep the city great for both visitors and residents."
