The man, in his 30s and from the Norwich area, was arrested earlier today on suspicion of offences under the Explosives Act.

A house in Middletons Lane, Hellesdon, is currently being searched in connection with the enquiry into the incident which happened outside a home in Buxton, near Aylsham, at the beginning of September.

Detectives have placed a seal on the property and Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal officers are currently assisting them.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: “Neighbouring properties can be reassured that they are not in any danger.”

Villagers in Buxton were made to leave their homes for more than eight hours on Sunday, September 2 after a man called police just after 11am to say that there was a device underneath his car.

A 100-metre cordon was then put in place around the vehicle in Coltishall Road and Explosive Ordnance Disposal officers were called to the scene to determine the nature of the device and to make sure there was no danger to people in the village.

Bomb disposal experts eventually removed the device from under the car and it was taken away for experts to analyse its contents.

The cordon was lifted at around 8.30pm the same day and residents returned to their homes.
