Three men have been re-bailed after a fight in Fakenham town centre in which four police officers were injured.

The public disorder happened in Queens Road and Bridge Street between 10.20pm and 10.40pm on Saturday, June 23.

A Norfolk police spokesman said the officers received minor injuries.

Three men were arrested in connection with the incident and were released on police bail pending further inquiries.

They answered the bail today at King’s Lynn Police Investigation Centre, but have been re-bailed until August 18.

A group of between 20 and 30 young people were in the area at the time and officers would like to hear from anyone who was in the town centre at the time of the altercation, or who witnessed the offence.

Any witnesses should contact PC Gareth Gricks at King’s Lynn police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
