Tributes have been paid to a man who died at the Castle Mall shopping centre in Norwich on Thursday.

Police said the man was aged in his mid 20s and was from the Norwich area.

He was discovered on the ground floor level with serious head injuries at around 7.20pm.

Despite the best efforts of medical staff, the man died at the scene. The Castle Mall and the adjoining Vue cinema were evacuated for the rest of the evening but were open yesterday.

Police officers are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death but they said that it was not being treated as suspicious and a file was being prepared for the coroner. The man's name is unlikely to be released until next week.
