POLICE say Spalding’s cells were at full capacity on New Year’s Eve – but that the celebrations passed without any major incidents.

Sgt Stuart Hurst, of Spalding Police Station, said a number of people were taken into custody for domestic matters, drink-driving and minor incidents on the streets.

He said three men were also arrested in connection with a disturbance on Pinchbeck Road, Spalding. Investigations into the matter are continuing.

Sgt Hurst said: “It was busy. We managed to apply a sensible policing approach and there were a lot of revellers out and about.”

Suspected offenders were taken to cells in Boston and Grantham when Spalding reached full capacity.

Spalding’s custody suite was reopened temporarily over the Christmas and New Year period. A cost-cutting closure trial is still ongoing.
