Football fans in Norfolk have been praised by police after a dramatic night of World Cup action passed without any arrests.
England took on Colombia on Tuesday night, in an exciting night of football which saw England eventually win a penalty shoot out.
And while spirits were running high across the county - with many of its pubs packed with spectators - the night passed without event.
Norfolk police said there had been no arrests related to football, and that fans had been “well behaved”.

Hundreds of people crammed into pubs in the centre of Norwich, and spilled out into Prince of Wales Road - the city’s clubland - after England’s victory.
The team will face their next match on Saturday, when they take on Sweden in the quarter finals.
An increased number of officers will be on duty.
