1987 storm: Spooky sight unearthed
Here is a look back at the North Norfolk News' coverage of the 1987 storm from 23rd October 1987.
Hurricane winds unearthed a spooky sight at Heydon Church.
Old bones were found entangled in the muddy roots of a lime tree which collapsed outside the village church on Friday.
Churchwarden Mr John Aves said: 'We went down there last night with a torch and a spade and felt more like bodysnatchers to be honest with you. We saw some bones and just threw some earth over them.'

More bones had been exposed as mud fell off the roots but they would also be covered over.
The Rev Jess Stubenbord, the priest in charge, commented: 'They were very old bones. We don't know whose they were but they must have been there for a long time to have been under the tree.'
