A man has been found dead with severe chest and facial injuries at a block of flats in Norwich.

The man, aged in his 50s, was found at a property at Saffron Square in Catton Grove early on Saturday.

A post-mortem examination concluded he had been assaulted and died as a result of his injuries.

Det Supt Paul Durham said: "We are in the early stages of this inquiry and are piecing together the events leading up to his death."

He said the address was sealed off during the investigation.

"I understand how shocking this will be to the local community, particularly given how rare incidents of this nature tend to be," he said.
