A woman has described the moment emergency services rushed to save a man who had been stabbed in the neck.
Police have launched a murder investigation after they were called to Antingham Drive in North Walsham just before 11.30pm on Friday, October 2.
Officers arrived on scene to find a man had been stabbed after a disturbance. He received treatment but died at the scene.
Two men were arrested at the scene. A man in his 40s was arrested on suspicion of murder while a second man in his 30s was arrested on suspicion of assault.
A woman who lives nearby said she saw three ambulances and six police cars arrive on scene, and saw paramedics attempt to resuscitate a man.
