Six people have now been arrested after more than 20 cars and a shop were damaged in a series of disturbances in Derby.

Incidents were reported in Campbell Street, Allenton, and Brighton Road, Alvaston, after 23:00 BST on Tuesday.

A number of vehicles were also damaged in the Village Street area of Normanton.

Derbyshire Police said all those arrested were teenage males. They have been bailed pending further inquiries.

In a separate incident, a window was broken at Bon Marche in St Peter's Street in the city centre at 01:00 BST on Wednesday.

Problems were also reported near to Moorways Sports Centre in Allenton where a car was damaged.

Assistant Chief Constable Dee Collins said: "While it is disappointing, if you take the incident out of the context of current events, it is the sort of thing we have to deal with every day in the county and compared to other areas it has been relatively low-key."

Police have said a high-visibility police presence will remain in key areas.
