A SEAFRONT resident has renewed calls for increased policing on weekend evenings following a vicious assault in the early hours of Sunday morning.
A 19-year-old man was taken to the James Paget University Hospital with serious head and neck injuries following the attack in Britannia Road, Great Yarmouth at 5.45am.
The resident, who did not wish to be named but lives on Marine Parade, was woken by the commotion in the street outside his home and opened his curtains to see a man lying on the pavement being looked after by six passers-by.
The resident said: “This thing is very common in this area. If only the police would police the area it will prevent this kind of thing from happening. The attack was horrific. It appeared he had been hit on the head. It is a very sad state of things that we have these incidents happening, but I am afraid they are going on all the time.”
