Three held after man attacked by 'Oompa-Loompas'

Three men have been arrested following an assault involving two people dressed as Oompa-Loompas.

Norfolk Police had called for witnesses to the attack on a man by four people, including two dressed as the fictional characters from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory on December 27.

Two of the attackers were described as wearing hooded tops, with dyed green hair and painted orange faces.

A spokesman said: "Two men in their late teens and one man in his early 20s, all from the North Walsham area, were arrested on Saturday on suspicion of GBH."

Oompa-Loompas were created by Roald Dahl in the 1964 children's book, before appearing in two film versions of the book.
