A 50-year-old woman was arrested in Lynn town centre yesterday after staging what passers-by described as an artist ‘installation’.
Lynn Police were called to St Dominic Square at 5.35pm on Thursday evening following reports of a disturbance on Broad Street.
The woman, who was arrested for breach of the peace, had scattered red paint and torn up book pages around the globe statue.
A painted red and yellow wooden plank was also propped up against the figure.
A police spokesman said: “The woman is from the Norwich area. She was arrested for breach of the peace and was given suitable words of advice.
“She has been released without charge.”
