Police say they "barely stopped all night" on an "exceptionally busy shift"
Local police officers say the demand on them last night (24 June) was bigger than on a typical New Year's Eve.
Despite social distancing rules still being in place, crowds gathered on The Hoe and Barbican.
Officers dealt with "a lot" of reports of antisocial behaviour and people being inconsiderate to local residents.
One person was arrested for assault and is being interviewed today (25 June).
On Twitter, Plymouth's C Section Response team, based in Crownhill, posted a thread explaining some of the incidents they had to deal with.
Tonight's night shift has been relentless, as was @DsectionPlym 's late shift. Late turn officers from response and investigation stayed on. A run down of some of the jobs attended:— Plymouth C Section Response (@PlymCSecResp) June 25, 2020
As well as dealing with antisocial behaviour, police were also called to two vehicle fires in Estover, both suspected to be arson. They also arrested a man for a racially aggravated assault which occured on Sunday (21 June).
A woman was also arrested for causing criminal damage in Ernesettle.
Large amounts of litter was also left on the Barbican last night. Photos and videos on social media show hundreds of plastic cups and beer bottles on pavements and in the water.
