Police remain on scene more than 24 hours after a suspected serious sexual assault in Norwich.

A police cordon put in place outside the St James' Quay development yesterday morning remains in place this morning (Saturday, June 12).
At least two police cars remained at the scene while officers could also be seen manning the cordon which blocks access through the car park to the riverside footpath.

"However, we are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or particularly anyone who may have dashcam footage in the area of Silver Road and Barrack Street from around 6am this morning."
