A man has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after being shot in Norwich.

Police were called to Adelaide Street at about 2am today after residents reporting hearing an altercation followed by a gunshot.

Units, including armed response officers, arrived to find a man with a gunshot wound to his back

The victim, a 19-year-old from London, was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment.

He remains in a serious condition although his injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

The shooting happened in a wooded area cornered by Adelaide Street and West End Street which has been sealed off while police carry out enquiries.

Supt Roger Wiltshire said: “We understand the nature of this incident will cause concern in the local community. However, I would like to reassure local residents that we do not believe there is any risk to the wider public following this incident.

“The area has been sealed off for forensic enquiries to take place and we will have a number of police resources in the area throughout the day, including an increase in uniformed officers to provide reassurance.

“Enquiries are ongoing to find those responsible and I would ask anyone who was in the area at the time of the attack, or anyone who has information, to come forward as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information about the incident should contact Norfolk Police on 101 quoting CAD reference 23 of today.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.

A Colchester woman accused of murdering a rough sleeper, whose badly beaten body was found in a car park, allegedly saw one of her co-defendants bite off the victim’s ear lobe and try to get him to swallow it.

Adriano Guedes, aged 65, of Kessingland, moved to England from Portugal more than 15 years ago and was admitted to hospital in 2014 after having a stroke.

A woman walking her dog along a footpath in Sudbury was confronted by a man who demanded her mobile phone.

Tributes have been paid to the former principal of Chadacre Agricultural College, John Paton Philip MBE, who has died at the age of 92.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.
