Police called to jubilee party on Norfolk and Cambridgeshire border after complaints about noise and bad behaviour

Celebrations in Elm result in trouble

Police were called three times to a jubilee party which got out of hand on the outskirts of Wisbech.

A planned and licensed party was held off Meadowgate Lane, Elm, but police were first called at 1.30pm with complaints about loud music and anti-social behaviour. Officers gave 'words of advice' to the organisers according to a spokesman.

But police were called out again at around 5.30pm after more complaints of drunken behaviour and loud music and they dispersed a crowd from a site close to the A47 behind a hand car-wash business.

Police were back at the scene for the final time at 10.30pm after more complaints.
