Six people were arrested after about 100 people were discovered in a former pig shed at an unlicensed music event.

Norfolk Police said it was called just before midnight on Saturday by a member of the public who said they had seen suspicious activity on land by Mundford Road, Methwold.

Officers arrived at about 04:00 BST on Sunday and found music "being played intermittently".

They closed entrances and seized vehicles and equipment.
