A man who was arrested after police attended a domestic in Wisbech was found with a lock knife on him.

The man was outside of a public place at the time of the incident when he was searched by officers.

He had been arrested at the scene to prevent a breach of the peace.

A Cambridgeshire Police spokesperson said: “On searching the male a lock knife was found on his person and he was further arrested and taken to the PIC.

“The male was outside in a public place at the time of the incident.

“Enquires continue.”
