A man has been charged with criminal damage after a bust-up which forced a city pub to close early.

Police were called The Garnet, next to Norwich Market, at 7.30pm on Wednesday, June 7.

Eyewitnesses reported that an argument outside the pub escalated and resulted in a man throwing glass bottles which broke two windows, as customers moved inside to stay safe.

Police have confirmed they were called to a man acting "aggressively" who was subsequently arrested at 1.37am on Thursday, June 9. 

Luke Hall, 35, of The Runnel, Norwich has been charged with criminal damage and remanded in custody.
