A second man in Norwich has died after taking former legal high AMT in Norwich.

The man, aged in his 20s, died at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital this morning after being taken ill at a property in Norfolk Street on Wednesday (7 January).

Officers launched an investigation after another man, also aged in his 20s, died on Wednesday morning.

Tests on substances seized have revealed traces of a drug known as AMT – a former legal high which was reclassified as a Class A drug on the same day that the men fell ill. 

Police said yesterday that the drugs had nothing to do with the recent 'Superman' deaths in Suffolk. 

Four people, three men aged 22, 30 and 33, and a 20-year-old woman, were arrested on suspicion of supplying a controlled drug and questioned by detectives yesterday. 

All suspects have since been released on bail until 5 February.
