A man has been arrested after driving a car through a busy park and knocking down a tree.
Police said they were called at around 1.15pm on Wednesday April 10 to reports of someone driving through St George’s Park in Great Yarmouth, having mounted the pathway and hit a tree.
A spokesman said the car was found later in the day with some damage and at 2.55pm a man in his 20s was arrested in Peggotty Road.
He remains in custody and is being held on suspicion of a range of offences including dangerous driving, public order offences, and being under the influence of drink or drugs.
Tyre tracks were visible in the grass and a tree looked to be almost uprooted.
There were also reports of flower beds being churned and a bench being clipped.
No-one is believed to have been injured, despite the park being busy with children enjoying the sunshine during the Easter break.
