People in Happisburgh have been told not to go down to a stretch of beach where what is believed to be part of a £50m stash of cocaine washed-up, it has been claimed.
One Happisburgh parish councillor, who did not wish to be named, said: 'Everyone is talking about it. We heard that a package had been found at Cart Gap and the advice is not to go down there at night because it could be too dangerous – we don't know what kind of undesirables may be lurking about.'
The latest discovery of a package at Cart Gap is not the first unusual find to be made on that stretch of coastline.
In 1953, crates of oranges were washed ashore following a shipwreck off Happisburgh.
