The pitch and putt course at Mousehold Heath in Norwich remained closed today, following the discovery of damage at the site.

Norwich City Council announced on Monday that the course, off Heartsease Lane, would be shut, but did not give a reason why.

Today, with the popular course still closed, a spokeswoman said: 'We have received reports from course users and our contractor that there had been people interfering with play and there has been damage caused to the course.

'This has meant, regrettably, we have had to close the course for the time being. We hope the issue can be resolved quickly and we can re-open the course.'

It is not clear if the matter has been reported to the police.

A group of Travellers are currently encamped on nearby land. Norfolk County Council's Traveller liaison team has not had any direct involvement with them, as the land is privately owned.

A council spokeswoman said the team was waiting for formal clarification of who owns the land.
