A man has died after suffering from a suspected cardiac arrest at a Norfolk beauty spot, police have confirmed.
It comes after coastguard crews and emergency services were called to help a man at Horstead, near Coltishall, at around 10am on Saturday, February 27.
Hemsby Broads Rescue said it was paged by Humber Coastguard at 10.10am to help a man who was suffering from a suspected cardiac arrest in the area, joining coastguard teams from Winterton and Bacton.
