Officers were called to an address in the Taverham Road/Penn Road area of the village at around 4.45pm this afternoon (Sunday March 31) after concerns were raised for the safety of a man by neighbours.

Upon arriving officers found a man in his 40s with serious injuries to his leg and the East Anglian Air Ambulance was called.

Following the assault, a man in his 30s, from the Norwich area, has been arrested and taken to Wymondham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

Superintendent Roger Wiltshire said: 'Initial investigations have led us to believe that those involved are known to each other and we are not looking for anyone else in relation to the assault.
