Norfolk Police confirmed the body of a man had been found in woodland in Ketts Park in Wymondham on Friday.

Officers were called to the park shortly after 3.30pm and cordoned off the scene while investigations took place.

A dog walker, who was in the area at the time, said: "I was having an afternoon walk and all of a sudden there were lots of sirens and then the area was sealed off."
