A mum was left with cracks in her windows after a mystery bang was heard in Norwich. 

Several people living in the NR3 area reported hearing a loud bang on Monday evening. 

Akina Talanova, 34, who lives in St Augustine's Street, put her kids to bed at 6pm but two hours later the family was woken up by a loud noise. 

"Our windows are thin so we heard the bang very loudly," said Ms Talanova. "The windows shook directly after and we now have cracks in the corners.

"The children woke up and were very scared by the noise. I checked on a local Facebook group to see if anyone else heard the noise and it seems several people did.

"It was one single loud bang so didn't sound like fireworks, and car alarms were going off in the street after it happened."
