Men deny 'Oompa Loompa' attack at Norwich kebab shop

Three men have appeared in court and denied an attack which involved people dressed as Oompa Loompas in Norwich.

A 28-year-old man suffered cuts and bruises as he left a kebab shop on Prince of Wales Road on 27 December.

Matthew Wright, 20, of Potter Heigham, Matthew Watling, 19, of Happisburgh and Louis Gelinas, 20, of Sutton, south-west London, deny assault causing actual bodily harm.

Their trial has been set for September at Norwich Crown Court.

The Ooompa Loompa costumes were based on those used in the 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, inspired by a novel by Roald Dahl.
