Man charged with Yarmouth murder

Detectives investigating the death of a man in Great Yarmouth have charged a 21-year-old man with murder.

Jurijs Ostrovskis, of Euston Road, Great Yarmouth, has been remanded in custody to appear at the town's magistrates court this morning charged with the offence.

It follows an incident on Sunday, January 2, where the body of Vladimir Adamavics, also 21, was discovered at an address on Euston Road.

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

Mr Adamavics was a 21-year-old Latvian and worked in a chicken factory.

He had lived in Great Yarmouth since November and knew the murder suspect for about five years in his homeland.

Mr Adamavics died after he was stabbed twice with a knife.
