 A further call was received by the East of England Ambulance Service shortly after, reporting that five men, aged in their 20s and 30s, had also been found on Marriott’s Way, two of which had suffered stab wounds.

 Five of those arrested were questioned and released on police bail with conditions to leave Norfolk and only to return when responding to bail.
