People living in the Sprowston, Heartsease and Mousehold areas of north Norwich were left looking to the skies this evening.

A police helicopter was flying around the area between 9.30pm and 10.30pm with spotlights shining down on Mousehold Heath and several police cars on the ground in the area.

A Norfolk Constabulary spokesman confirmed officers had been searching for a missing woman, who had been hiding.

Several people had taken to social network Twitter to try and find out what was going on, with the official @NorfolkPolice account tweeting: “Norfolk Police would like to reassure the public the helicopter deployment in Norwich tonight was nothing for anyone to be concerned about.”
