Police have confirmed an attack in Norwich which left one man with stab wounds to his stomach was a fight between university students.

Officers were called just before 3am on 11 December to Bluebell Road following reports a man in his 20s had been injured.

Three people were arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. A 20-year-old man has since been released on bail until January 2020 while a 19-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman have been released under investigation.

The victim remains in a stable condition at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Police confirmed all those involved in the fight were students from the University of East Anglia.

A spokesman for the university said it would be inappropriate to comment on an ongoing police investigation, but sought to reassure students.

"These kinds of incidents near or on our campus are very rare. In any incident of this type, we offer support to affected students through our student services team and we would urge anyone with information to contact Norwich CID."
