A 22-year-old man has been charged with GBH after a midnight stabbing in Lowestoft on Saturday.

Homeless Ryan Page has been charged with two counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm after a 21-year-old man was stabbed in the town's St Peter's Street. He has also been charged with possession of a knife in a public place.

Emergency services were called to the scene, near East Coast College, at around 11.35pm on Saturday following reports that a man had been stabbed.

The victim was taken to James Paget University Hospital with a single stab wound and was later transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

His injuries were initially said to be life-threatening but a police spokesman said he is now in a 'critical but stable condition'.

St Peter's Street and Yeovil Road were cordoned off following the incident but cordons have now been removed.

Page was one of five men arrested following the incident, with all having been taken to investigation centres in Great Yarmouth, Martlesham and Bury St Edmunds for questioning.

The four other men, two of whom are 20 and the others 23 and 24, have been released on bail until May 27 and 28.

Page has been remanded in custody and is due to appear before Suffolk Magistrates' Court today.
