It was initially feared that the craft, unoccupied at the time, had been stolen from the public moorings some time during Saturday night.

Police were joined by Broads Authority staff in a search down river and one of the boats was quickly found stranded on a mud bank.

The others were also located downstream their mooring ropes apparently having been untied by vandals.

A police spokesman said: “We would like to hear from any witnesses who saw what happened and ask them to call us on 101.”
