This shot by Cley villager Sarah Whittley shows the second Pave Hawk aircraft involved in the training exercise, landed close to the crash area - which police says sees debris, including bullets, covering the size of a football pitch.

Ms Whittley from the Pinkfoot art gallery said the area was busy with incoming US military traffic, including a low loader with a digger on the back which was struggling to get through the village’s winding streets.

Police this morning said the bodies of the four crew from RAF Lakenheath have not yet been recovered.

The coast road remains closed and a 400m cordon in place around the crash site.
