Part of a former second world war airfield has been turned into a combat zone as part of a new enterprise run by a former army engineer.
Battlefield Live Norwich has taken up camp on a 20 acre corner of Old Buckenham Airfield, near Attleborough, after being set up Lee Belcher.
The New Buckenham resident left the army after 24 years in the Royal Engineers last year and decided to set up the war games business, which uses infrared gaming guns for groups of up to 31 people.
Mr Belcher said the games were good for corporate groups for team building exercises and were a good workout with participants running up to five miles in a two hour session.
The company also has a mobile inflatable village so they can take their war games to events.
