Police are continuing their investigations after a house party escalated into violence and spilled out into the streets in Great Yarmouth.

Seven people in total have now been arrested in connection with the original offences on Saturday and a second incident in the same location the following night.

Four people were arrested on Saturday, all on suspicion of affray, after police stormed an area near the junction of Devonshire Road and Wellington Road.

A 20-year-old man, two 19-year-old men and a 50-year-old man were all brought into police custody, but have since been released - though they remain under investigation.

A further three people were arrested at the same location on Sunday night, shortly before 10.50pm, following reports of further disorder.

All three are men and are aged 23, 24 and 27 respectively. They too were arrested on suspicion of affray and have been taken to Great Yarmouth PIC, where they remain in custody.
