A message scrawled on the wall of a Norwich underpass claims that a rough sleeper who died yesterday was "murdered by austerity".

Flowers have also been left in the underpass from people who knew the man.

One message read: “A dear friend, you will be sadly missed forever.”

Officers were called to the St Stephen’s Street underpass at 7am on Wednesday following reports that a man had collapsed.

Emergency services rushed to the scene but the man died.

Among the messages left at the scene today, the words “RIP murdered by austerity” were written across the wall.

The message continued: “Wake up to the dangers of the fascist state before it’s too late.”

As of yesterday, police were treating the death as unexplained. It is not thought to be suspicious.
