Three people were arrested during the early hours in a Norwich suburb as part of an ongoing police investigation. 

Officers were called around 2.50am on Tuesday to an address on Hemlin Close in Earlham. 

The incident saw police swoop on a home in the close and arrest three people and subsequent visits made throughout the day.

A spokeswoman for Norfolk Police said: "The arrests relate to an ongoing police investigation and therefore it would not be appropriate to comment any further at this time." 

Eyewitnesses saw a police van at the address during the day following the arrests.
