Detectives are continuing to investigate the death of a man in Norwich.
Officers discovered a man with serious head injuries in Clapham Woods, off Drayton Road, just before 5.15am on Monday 22 June. The ambulance service attended but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A cordon has been placed around Clapham Woods whilst officers carry out their enquiries. St Martins Road, between Aylsham Road and Drayton Road, and Drayton Road, between the junctions of St Martins Road and Lime Kiln Mews, are closed.

A man, aged in his 30s and from the Norwich area, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and has been taken to the Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

Detective Chief Inspector Phil Gray from the Norfolk and Suffolk Joint Major Investigation Team said: “Officers are continuing with their enquiries to establish the exact circumstances leading up to this man’s death, and whilst we are in the early stages of this investigation, we do know the suspect and the victim are known to each other.

“I would like to hear from anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area of Clapham Woods in the early hours of this morning.

“It is understandable that the local community will be shocked by this incident, especially as it has happened within a few days of the murder of a woman in Thorpe St Andrew. I would like to reassure the community that these incidents are not connected and in both cases the suspect and victims were known to each other. Officers will be carrying out reassurance patrols in both areas over the coming days and anyone with concerns is encouraged to speak to them or contact their local Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.”
