A family of four were lucky enough to find the Holly Hares Rock in Chapelfield Gardens over the weekend.

Sarah Samuel, from the Dereham Road area in Norwich, found the rock with her 12-year-old daughter Ellie while her husband Alan and her nine-year-old son Jack searched nearby.

She said: 'We couldn't believe it when we found it. We were just skimming the ground with our feet and next thing you know we all started going mad.

'We were jumping up and down and we phoned the boys as they had gone to look elsewhere. Ellie and I were screaming with excitement as we couldn't believe we had found one. We are all still over the moon'.

The family had spent two hours the previous Sunday looking for a Hares Rock on Britannia Road but had no luck finding anything. However, when they tried again this weekend they struck gold.

'We decided to look in the less obvious places as there were quite a few families looking around the band stand and the park.

'We said before we found one that if any of us did, the prize would be split between Ellie and Jack'.

The Samuels plan to collect their prize today when both children have finished school.

There are still five rocks left to find. Here are the remaining clues:
