Police were called at 4.30am to reports of a disturbance between two groups of people on a footpath between Dereham Road and the North Earlham estate.

The footpath - Boatman Way - was sealed off for much of the morning, while scenes of crime officers carried out investigations.

Police said the injuries to the people, who were taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, were not thought to be serious.

They appealed for anyone who saw what happened to contact PC Richard Walker at Norfolk Constabulary on 101.
