A warning has been issued to boat owners after a spate of thefts of outboard motors.
Norfolk Constabulary's Broads Beat team has issued the reminder after five crimes in the last two weeks.
Most recently, an outboard motor was stolen overnight on Thursday, June 2 in Martham, near Great Yarmouth.
PC Paul Bassham, Broads Beat team manager, said: 'There are many marine crime prevention initiatives in place to help prevent you becoming a victim. These include Boatshield, Selecta DNA and Data Tag.
