A group of 12 or so people came up with an unusual story after they were stopped by police - they were out hunting ghosts.

A member of the group was found to be in possession of a number of pieces of apparent ghost-hunting paraphernalia - including a chair leg, metal pipe, and what looks like a short samurai-style sword in its scabbard.

PC Jon Parker reported on Twitter the group was stopped in the mid-Norfolk village of West Raynham, near Fakenham, overnight between Wednesday, March 7 and Thursday, March 8.

PC Parker said: “Called to a report of a dozen people acting suspiciously around West Raynham.

“They claimed to have been ghost hunting! Vehicles and persons all stop searched. The owner of these items now has a few questions to answer.”

PC Parker said the owner of the suspicious items was not present and did not live in Norfolk.

He said: “Those enquiries will be passed to the relevant force to take up. It was on the Kiptons estate which is the old military housing which is on the former RAF base.”
