However, it may be some time before the results are known.

Liam Russell, 31, of Metcalf Avenue, South Lynn, was yesterday remanded in custody by magistrates in Norwich in connection with the incident.

He has been charged with assault, occasioning grievous bodily harm, though police have stressed that is subject to a review following the results of the post-mortem.

An application for him to be released on bail is due to be heard at Norwich Crown Court tomorrow.
