Police believe the body found in a wooded area in Narford, near Swaffham, last night is that of Alan Naylor.

Mr Naylor, of Church Lane, Pentney, left work on Monday morning feeling unwell and hadn't been seen since.

The police received a call at around 6.20pm last night from a member of the public who had discovered the body while walking in the area.

Formal identification is set to take place, but it is believed to be that of the 56-year-old who was reported missing earlier this week. His next-of-kin are aware.

The incident is not being treated as suspicious and an inquest will be opened at a date to be confirmed.
