Two men are to stand trial accused of stabbing three people following a fight in Great Yarmouth.

Junior Mampuya, 21 and Apio Gomes, 20, both of St Peters Road, Great Yarmouth, both appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Monday (November 27) after being charged with three counts of wounding with intent.

It followed an incident when police were called to St Peters Road shortly before 9.40pm on October 25 following reports of a fight in the street involving a number of people.

Three people suffered knife wounds – two minor and one serious – and all three were taken to the James Paget University Hospital for treatment and have since been released.

Both defendants, who appeared via videolink from HMP Norwich, each pleaded not guilty to all three counts.

They are both due to stand trial on April 16 next year.

The trial, which will be held at Norwich Crown Court, is expected to last five days.

Both defendants remain in custody.
