Two arrests have been made following an incident which prompted an armed response from police close to a Norfolk park.

At around 7pm on Thursday, May 18, armed police officers were sent to St Faith's Road in Norwich, close to Catton Park, where a man with a knife was arrested.

A spokesman from Norfolk Police this morning said a second arrest was made in connection with the incident, but that no further details could be revealed at this time.

Lou Provart, an inspector for Norfolk Police, last night said a drone was also used as part of the operation, and that no people were injured in the incident.
