New year crime figures low in Sherborne
Sherborne Police has had a relatively incident-free start to the year.
Figures suggest disturbances remained low as revellers celebrated the new year in the town.
PCSOs on duty said there were no incidents involving any of the pubs in the town.
According to Sgt Rachel Goodwin, there was just one arrest and four minor incidents reported between New Year's Eve night and running into the early hours of New Year's Day.

Sgt Goodwin said there was minor antisocial behaviour at 10pm, a window accidentally smashed at 12.15am, and a smashed window in Cheap Street at 4.30am, which is unknown to be deliberate or accidental.
Sherborne patrol arrested a driver after a breathalyser test proved positive following a stop check of a vehicle at 12.50am.
Sgt Goodwin said: "Officers on duty during that time inform me that it was a quiet night, despite the obvious increase in numbers for the festivities, and that, in fact, at midnight officers witnessed a lovely marriage proposal outside the Abbey which reflected the good nature of the evening."
