A Tudor manor house has been closed to visitors due to an oil spillage.

Oxburgh Hall, in Oxborough, near Swaffham, is closed today while steps are taken to clear up an oil leak on the path leading to the 15th century building.

A spokesman said: 'It is closed due to a small oil spillage this morning.

'The grounds and park are remaining open but the house and the tea rooms have had to be closed as people can't get to the house without walking through it.

'We are closed partly because of people's shows but also because we don't want it trodden into the house.'

The hall, which Henry VII is believed to have stayed at, is expected to open again tomorrow.
