They were taken to Lynn Police Investigation Centre for questioning, where they remain.

Det Insp Duncan Woodhams said while they have made those two arrests, enquiries are ongoing to trace further suspects.

"We understand that incidents of this nature are concerning to the local community, however initial enquiries have established that those involved are known to one another and we are treating this as an isolated incident, with no threat to the wider public," he added.

“As a response, officers will be conducting reassurance patrols in the local area and we would always encourage residents who may have any concerns, to speak with them.”

A police cordon remains in place at the location, whilst enquiries continue.

Anyone who has any information and has not yet spoken with police is encouraged to contact Swaffham CID on 101 quoting incident 475 of August 16.
