Emergency services were called to reports that a man had been stabbed near East Coast College in St Peter’s Street at around 11.35pm.

The 21-year-old victim suffered a single stab wound and was initially taken to James Paget University Hospital, before being taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

Judge David Pugh adjourned the case until Friday (June 4) to allow Page to be legally represented before he enters pleas to the charges.
