A police spokesman said the false allegation has now been withdrawn bythe woman who made the allegation and no further action would now be taken by the police.

The incident in February was one of those which led to claims there was a crime wave in the town.

That claim was refuted strongly by the head of policing in Great Yarmouth and the leader of the borough council.
