An incident in which a man stopped breathing before being airlifted to hospital, is not being treated as suspicious.

The man from Ashwellthorpe was airlifted to hospital in a life-threatening condition.

An area around Knyvett Green was cordoned off after a large response from all three emergency services.

A spokesman for the East Anglian Air ambulance said their Norwich helicopter was dispatched at around 6.20pm.
