A man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and driving offences after being stopped in Norwich.

The incident - which eye witnesses said involved eight police officers - took place close to the mini roundabouts on Plumstead Road East, Thorpe St Andrew, just after 10pm on Wednesday, July 15.

A Norfolk police spokesman said: “Officers stopped a vehicle just after 10pm yesterday (July 15), on Plumstead Road East, Norwich. The driver, a man in his 20s, was arrested on suspicion of burglary, driving without insurance, and driving without a licence. He was taken to Aylsham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.”

A nearby resident, who wanted to remain anonymous, witnessed the police operation and said eight officers were on the scene for about an hour.
