Two boats have been stolen from waterways in Ludham,

Police are appealing for information after a 20ft cruiser, named Tarka, was taken from the Ludham Bridge Boatyard between September 19 and September 27. The boat was later found at moorings in nearby Potter Heigham. No damage had been caused to the vessel and it is believed offenders may have towed the boat away.
