Two teenagers arrested in connection with a stabbing in a Great Yarmouth park have been released on police bail. 

Officers were called to St George's Park, off Trafalgar Road, at around 7.20pm on Sunday October 10 following reports a man had been attacked. 

The victim was with two other men in the park when they were approached by teenagers who demanded their bikes before attacking the victim.
