At around 7.30pm, the cordon was partially lifted but the seal remained on sections of King Street.

People in a nearby shop said there had been plenty of interest in what was going on.

One man, who said he lived in the area, said he wasn't surprised to find police on the streets.

Norfolk Police have yet to confirm the nature of the incident.
