Four men have been arrested in connection with the murder of a man who was stabbed to death at the roadside.

The man, believed to be in his 20s, died after being found injured shortly after 19:00 BST on Thursday near Brandon Road in Thetford, Norfolk.

Police said the death was being treated as murder but would not reveal what the men had been arrested on suspicion of.

The force said it believed it to be an "isolated incident with those involved known to each other".

Patrol officers in the area were alerted to the man when they found members of the public giving him first aid, but he was pronounced dead at the scene shortly before 20:00 BST.

Det Ch Insp Phillip Gray said: "I want to appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of Brandon Road, Canon's Close or Canterbury Way or the surrounding woodland to contact the investigating team as a matter of urgency.

"Brandon Road carries a lot of traffic and I would particularly appeal to anyone who has dash cam footage to get in touch with us."
