A man has been found dead in the stairwell of a house in Great Yarmouth.

The body of the 38-year-old, believed to be a foreign national, was discovered early on Monday morning at the property in Wellesley Road.

A man in his late 30s from Peterborough has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out but his identity is unlikely to be confirmed before Wednesday, police said.

Det Insp Andy Guy said: "We are working to narrow down the victim's movements in the period leading up to his death.

"The man appeared to have suffered multiple injuries although we await the results of forensic medical examinations to confirm the cause of his death."
