Three men have denied an attack on a Norwich street which involved people dressed as Oompa Loompas.

A 28-year-old man suffered cuts and bruises after an alleged attack near the Prince of Wales Road nightclub.

Police have issued an appeal for information, explaining that some of the alleged participants in the attack were dressed as the pint-sized characters from Roald Dahl's children's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Matthew Wright, Matthew Watling and Louis Gelinas deny assault causing actual bodily harm. A trial date was set for September.
