MORE VEHICLE BREAK-INS REPORTED IN THE AREA
A spate of break-ins, involving vehicles, is continuing in and around the South Norfolk area.
Police say that the latest reports of thefts followed incidents at Kenninghall and Banham at the weekend. The series of break-ins on vans and cars has been continuing for several weeks now and police have renewed appeals for vehicle owners to remain vigilant.
TRAIN SERVICES HIT BY INCIDENT
Train services through Diss have been badly disrupted for most of this morning.
It follows an accident in Essex when a person was hit by a train on the Norwich to London line. This resulted in the cancellation of services and long delays for passengers.
Lines have since been re-opened this afternoon and Greater Anglia say that services are running normally.
POLICE INQUIRY CONTINUES INTO FATAL ACCIDENT
Police are investigating a road crash that resulted in the death of a woman at Brockdish.
Paramedics were called out to the collision on the A143, but the woman, aged in her 70s, died at the scene. Seven people were also injured in the incident involving two cars near the junction with The Street on Sunday afternoon.
Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone who may have dash-cam footage.
‘UNEXPLAINED’ INCIDENTS RESULT IN THREE ARRESTS
Suffolk police are receiving an average of one call a month about “unexplainable events”.
There were nine reports of UFO sightings last year in the county and also three of ghost sightings. Police went to investigate seven reports of paranormal activity. They ended up making three arrests, but no aliens or spirits were involved.
The arrests were for theft, harassment or, in one case, a sexual offence.
