“We have had numerous public order incidents in Newport tonight. I have dealt with some drunken juveniles and also drunken adults who have no idea where they live and the late and night shifts have made several arrests around the public order issues in the town. Two males from Portsmouth are currently in our custody following a fight in the town centre and several Covid breaches.
