Police have issued a CCTV image of potential witnesses they think may be able to help their investigation into an incident where shots were fired through a window in Great Yarmouth over the weekend.

A woman suffered minor cuts after a window was smashed at a house in St Peter’s Road just after midnight on Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Officers want to hear from a group of people – seen standing near an alleyway entrance on Napoleon Place – near to the Duke of Wellington pub around that time.

We’ve been examining CCTV as part of our enquiries and in this image you can make out a group of people, possibly about four, who are standing near an alleyway as the person who we believe to be our suspect, leaves the scene on St Peter’s Road.

I would urge anyone who believes this could be them to come forward as it’s likely you have information which could help our enquiries.

– Detective Sergeant Darren Reade

Two teenager boys have since been released on bail, while a third was issued with a penalty notice for disorder.

A young boxer who was put on life support after he was knocked unconscious during his first fight has died.

Kuba Moczyk was fighting at the Atlantis Arena in Great Yarmouth on Saturday after months of training.

In the final round, Kuba was knocked to the ground from a single punch and suffered bleeding on the brain.

Kuba's family had set up a fundraising page hoping to raise money to take him to a specialist hospital abroad.

But sadly the 22-year-old died on Wednesday night with his family by his bedside.

Some of his organs have been donated for transplant.

Kuba's best friend and trainer says he will "never meet a more kind-hearted and special person".

I will never meet someone with better heart.

I'll do everything to make sure his name is kept alive at the gym. I have known him since he was 15-years-old, he was kind-hearted and a gentleman. Everyone who knew him loved him.
