Police say they are looking to identify three men in relation an incident in Great Yarmouth in which a man was stabbed.

On Friday, police were called to Marine Parade by paramedics shortly after 2.30pm, following reports an 18-year-old man had been stabbed in the neck.

The victim was airlifted to hospital, though his injuries were not life-threatening.

He has since been discharged with officers carrying out enquiries to identify three men believed to have been involved in the attack.

Following the incident, 40-year-old father Barry Shatford rushed to the aid of the victim, performing first aid before paramedics arrived to take over.

“I just did what I could - I feel if I didn’t try and do something, then maybe nobody would.”
