West Norfolk council is seeking information from the public to trace missing street name plates in Castle Rising and Sandringham.

A council spokesman said replacement of the street signs will take place in the coming weeks at a cost to the tax payer.

Councillor Richard Blunt, cabinet member for development at the borough council, said: 'People may not be aware that it is a criminal offence to tamper with, deface or remove street name plates without the permission of the local authority. If found guilty, culprits would be subject to a fine.'

'Street name plates are paramount in assisting the emergency services to locate address quickly and efficiently. In some cases this can be a matter of life and death.'
