Three arrests over sexual assault in Postwick A47 lay-by

Three men have been arrested in connection with a serious sexual assault on the outskirts of Norwich.

Officers were called to the A47 in Postwick at about 05:00 BST over reports that a 32-year-old woman had been robbed and sexually assaulted.

She had accepted a lift in Rouen Road, Norwich, by three men who drove her to a lay-by, where she was attacked.

A vehicle suspected of being involved in the incident was stopped a short time later on the A1064 near Filby.

Three men, aged 22, 24, and 26, are in custody at Wymondham.

The woman is receiving help from specialist officers and staff at Norfolk's Sexual Assault Referral Centre.
