Three men have been taken into custody after an 'unprovoked' attack on Prince of Wales Road in which a man was allegedly stamped on the head.

Police were called at around 4.30am to the area close to the KFC at the bottom of the road.

The first victim, a man believed to be in his 20s, had been knocked unconscious during the incident, before another man tried to intervene.

Sgt Mark Shepherd, of Norwich South safer neighbourhood team, said: 'The second victim tried to stop the assault and was head butted, causing a split lip. This could have been a really nasty incident.'

Officers have already spoken to a number of people who were in the area at the time but are appealing for further information.
