Cars which have been behind a police cordon as part of a city murder probe this morning can now be collected.
The barriers at Rose Lane car park have now been lifted so around 140 cars, which had been off limits, can be removed.
A spokesman for Norwich City Council said: “Rose Lane car park barriers have been lifted so people can collect their vehicles. But it remains closed to incoming traffic for the time being.”
Officers had closed off areas of Rose Lane and Mountergate in the early hours of this morning after a fatal stabbing at the car park.
They had been called just after midnight after reports a man in his 40s had been stabbed.
The man was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment, but has died from his injuries.
A man in his 20s has since been arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently being held in police custody.
Det Insp Ian Cox said: “We are in the early stages of the investigation however enquiries carried out to date suggest this was not a random attack.
“There has been an increased police presence in the area and will be for some time as our investigation continues.
“A seal remains in place whilst officers carry out enquiries to fully understand the circumstances surrounding the incident.”
Enquiries are continuing and detectives ask that anyone with information should contact Norfolk Police immediately on 101.
