With millions transfixed on ‘It’s Coming Home’, Cambridgeshire police revealed 18 people were arrested overnight and definitely didn’t make it home.
The force said today the multiple arrests ranged from allegations of making threats to kill, dangerous driving, violent assaults, possessing offensive weapons to robbery and drink driving.
In a tongue in cheek post to their Facebook pages earlier, police had, politely, asked “if everyone could please refrain from committing any crime tonight between 8pm and 11pm, that'd be great”.
In a reminder of that post today, police noted that some criminals “must have refused to listen to our ‘Sterling’ advice yesterday”.
Members of the county have taken to social media, thanking the police for their ‘incredible’ efforts.
