Knife found after Great Yarmouth stab death

A knife has been found following the suspected murder of 21-year-old Vladimir Adamavics in Great Yarmouth.

A member of the public alerted police to the discovery, made on the town's beach close to Britannia Pier, shortly before 3pm this afternoon.

The knife is believed to be the weapon used when Mr Adamavics was stabbed twice at the former Labour club house in Euston Road on Sunday, January 2.

Emergency services were called at about 7am after receiving reports that the Latvian man had suffered serious injuries, but he died at the scene.

A Latvian man in his 20s who knew the suspect has been arrested in connection with the stabbing remains in police custody and continues to be questioned.

The suspected murder weapon was found after a police appeal. It followed an earlier discovery of a knife on the beach by a member of the public, who took a photograph of it on his mobile phone and contacted the authorities.

However, when the man returned to the beach the knife had disappeared.
