Police cordoned off a Norfolk village pub after a woman's body was found on the premises.

Forensic officers put up a tent in the beer garden of the Compasses Inn, at Snettisham, where white-suited scenes of crime specialists could be seen going about their work as dusk fell last night.

A car in a garage next to the pub had been covered with a tarpaulin, although it was not clear whether it was part of the investigation.

Uniformed officers stood guard outside the carrstone property, which stands beside a busy main road near the middle of the village.
