The body of a man in his 40s was found in the Snettisham Woods area last night, police confirmed this morning

Formal identification has yet to take place but it is thought to be the body of 48-year-old Andrew Simpson from the Leziate area, who was last seen on Thursday, January 24.

Police officers, assisted by Norfolk Fire and Rescue service and Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue, conducted a series of searches over the past week and it was during one of these that the body was found.

A post mortem will take place shortly, although a police spokesman said there do not appear to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.

The death has now been referred to the coroner.
