Helicopter crashes in Norfolk

Police are investigating reports that a helicopter has crashed in Norfolk.

A cordon has been set up around the incident in Cley-next-the-Sea, but the Norfolk force have not yet confirmed how many were on board or whether there are any fatalities.

A police spokesman said: "Police are currently dealing with a helicopter crash in the Cley area, on the North Norfolk coast. Officers are on the scene, with a 400 metre area cordoned off."

A spokesman for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution said: "We were asked for three lifeboats to respond to reports that an aircraft had possibly ditched in the sea.

"Lifeboats Wells, Sheringham and Cromer were launched at the request of the coastguard but were stood down when it was confirmed that the aircraft had come down over land."
