Seven teenagers who were arrested in connection with a spate of attacks in Lynn last weekend have been released on bail, police say.

The six boys and one girl, who are all aged between 14 and 17, were detained on Wednesday night over two assaults, a robbery and an attempted robbery which are all said to have happened in The Walks area of the town last Saturday night.

A police spokesman confirmed on Friday that the group had all been released on bail until January.

An eighth teenager, a 15-year-old boy who was arrested last Tuesday, is also on bail until January.

At least four men are believed to have been assaulted in the incidents, which all happened within a three-hour period on the evening of November 15.

Police stepped up patrols in the area in the wake of the attacks.

Senior officers also pledged to target crime and anti-social behaviour in the area as an ongoing priority at a public meeting last week.
