Thursday, December 21, 2017

A man has been arrested after a firework in a bin caused an explosion in Norwick.

Officers were called around 1.50pm after what police describe as a "small explosion" in a bin in the car park at The Forum on Millennium Plain.

The explosion caused the building to be evacuated before order was restored.

It was quickly confirmed that the explosion was caused by a firework, which had been thrown in the bin.

Enquiries led officers to arrest a man in his 20s yesterday evening. He has been taken to Wymondham Police Investigation Centre where he’ll be questioned in due course in connection with the incident.
