Conflict rumbles on between some Sea Palling residents and a sex club amid reports of a recent assault.

Police said they are investigating an assault in the car park of a property in Church Road on the evening of December 4, 2021.

The property, formerly the site of the Old Hall Inn, has been used as a base for Norfolk Lab - an adult male-only social events and adult party group.

"Officers attended the addresses and a man aged in his 50s has been interviewed by police in connection with the incident.
