Four people remain on remand and face trial after being accused of assaults in King’s Lynn which closed road for 36 hours





Four people believed to have been involved in a weekend of crime in Lynn will face trial after being accused of committing several offences.

Police were called to a fight involving a group of people on Littleport Street in Lynn at around 4am on Sunday, March 3, where one man was left seriously injured.

The road was closed for more than 36 hours while police were investigating.

Police believed the incident was linked to two assaults which took place the day before, which left two men with serious injuries at Millfleet Court.

Also on March 3 at 8.13am, another man was seriously assaulted on Blackfriars Road.

Ben Mallet, Lewis Mitchell, Nathan Roberts and Georgia McGregor all appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Friday where they entered a number of pleas to different offences from that weekend.

Mitchell, Mallet and Roberts all denied committing robbery.
