A man is in hospital after being stabbed outside a home in Norwich.

Police were called just after 9pm on Saturday to a house in Chambers Road in the Mile Cross area.

The incident saw a lengthy cordon put in place in the area while the police investigated, with neighbours witnessing officers searching through nearby bushes with torches.

A man was taken to hospital, where he remained on Sunday evening.

A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary said: "Police were called at 9:03pm on Saturday, January 9, to reports that a man had been stabbed outside an address on Chambers Road, Norwich.

"A seal was in place at the scene while officers carried out enquiries, but this has since been lifted.

 "The victim, who is aged in his 20s, remains in a stable condition in hospital, as officers investigate the incident."

The sealed remained in place until 2.22pm on Sunday, with police cars and forensic vans both seen at the scene.
