Detectives have today urged witnesses to come forward after a 16-year-old boy suffered a broken jaw when he was attacked in a Lynn street on Good Friday.

Police say the boy had been walking along Tennyson Avenue, towards the Walks, with two other people at around 10.30pm on Friday, April 3, when the incident happened.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said they became involved in a dispute with a group of six men.

One of the men, who are all believed to be in their 20s, is said to have pushed the boy before hitting him several times.

The attacker is said to be white and had a beard.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has information about it, is asked to contact Det Con Gail Morley, of Lynn CID, via the non-emergency 101 number.
