Detectives and forensic officers were at a block of flats on Angel Road, and people living nearby reported seeing a police outside the flats for much of the day on Friday.

Patsy Seager, who lives locally, said she saw a police car outside the address at 10am on August 30.

One resident living on Angel Road, who didn't want to be named, said: "We just got asked whether we've got CCTV.

"The forensics van was outside all yesterday afternoon and they were there all evening as well.

"A police guy has been trying the windows from outside to see if he could get in."

Another neighbour, who also wanted to remain anonymous, said: "The police have just been and asked if we've seen anything."

She added: "We don't have any problems with the area but we've only lived here for a couple of years.

While a resident living in the block of flats, who asked not to be named, said: "We've just seen forensics and a few police cars outside.

"It all happened yesterday - forensics were there last night and they went off and came back again."

She added: "It's a lovely area - all I know is they've been here all night."

A neighbour, who didn't want to be identified, added: "They were out there last night but I don't know what was going on.

"We do see police quite a lot."

And an Angel Road resident added: "We got back from holiday last night and it was there - I was pretty surprised to see it still here this morning."

A Norfolk police spokewoman said the next step for officers would be preparing a file for the coroner.
