Police removed the grey Volkswagen Golf Wagon from in front of the path that cuts through from Salisbury Road to Station Road in Cromer at 10am on Wednesday.

Police were called at 8.59am and due to parents being unable to get through with pushchairs, officers later removed the car on the back of a tow truck.
