A Norfolk Police spokesman today said the man, in his late 20s, was taken to hospital but later left without undergoing treatment.

He was subsequently arrested in Burkitt Street during the early hours of Saturday on suspicion of possessing cannabis and criminal damage.

The spokesman said he was questioned at the police investigation centre at Saddlebow and cautioned for drug possession. No further action was taken on the criminal damage matter.
