A teenager accused of murdering Great Yarmouth man Andrew McGowan is due to appear at Norwich Crown Court today.

Warren Ricardo Blake, 18, from Thorncliffe Road, in south London, made a brief appearance before magistrates in Norwich on Saturday.

The Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team charged Blake with murder on Friday.

Mr McGowan, 33, was found with serious injuries when police officers, called to reports of a disturbance, went to a flat in Dickens Court, Yarmouth, at 10.35pm on November 14. He died at the scene. A Home Office post-mortem examination revealed he died as a result of stab wounds.

During Saturday morning's court appearance, Blake spoke only to confirm his name, birth date and address.

No plea was entered and Blake, who turned 18 last week, was remanded in custody to appear at Norwich Crown Court this morning.

A 21-year-old man also arrested in connection with the incident has been bailed to respond to police at a later date.
