King's Lynn students redirected due to police attending incident




Students in Lynn were redirected to another location due to a police incident in which a man has been detained this morning.

College of West Anglia students were asked to go to Lynnsport instead of the Tennyson Avenue campus as a result of an earlier incident which police attended.

Police were called around 7.50am following reports of concerns for the safety of a man barricaded in the building.
