Two people, aged 17 and 26, have been arrested over the shooting of a 19-year-old man in Norwich.

The victim, from London, was treated for a gunshot wound to the back at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. He is now in a stable condition.

The attack happened in the early hours of Wednesday. Police found the wounded teenager in Adelaide Street.

The shooting is believed to have happened in a nearby park, police said.

Norfolk's Chief Constable Simon Bailey visited the scene earlier and said detectives were looking in to possible links with London drug gangs.
