A field next to fishing lakes could be used for zorbing.

Developer Neil Grant has applied to change the use of the KLAA field off Beach Road, Snettisham, from farmland into an 'outdoor fun park'.

In a statement accompanying his planning application, Mr Grant says the site would offer zorbing (being rolled down a hill in a large inflatable ball) and water zorbing (rolling around on a specially-designed pool).

There would also be an area where people can dress up in padded sumo wrestling suites to grapple each other.

'The park will be the only one of its kind operating in the UK and will feature all kinds of family-friendly outdoor pursuits,' the statement adds.

'The park is designed with affordable family fun in mind and will therefore have something for everyone.'

He adds the park would be inflatable and would be packed down at night.
