Emergency services were called to an address in Melton Constable in north Norfolk where a sudden death had occurred.

A Norfolk police spokesman said the death was not being treated as suspicious.

An East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust spokesperson said: “We received a 999 call at 8.47am on Friday, March 3 to a private address in Melton, to which an ambulance was dispatched, after concerns for someone’s welfare.”

Fire crews from Sheringham, Holt and Fakenham were mobilised to help the ambulance service, but were stood down before arrival.

A police spokesman said they would not be releasing the gender, age or address of the person.
