Police say a serviceman has been threatened with a knife near the married quarters of an RAF base.

The serviceman is understood to have been approached by two men with a knife at RAF Marham, near King's Lynn in Norfolk, at about 3pm on Wednesday.

The men then escaped in a dark-coloured Ford Galaxy.

The serviceman, who was not in uniform, was not injured.

Norfolk Constabulary said they would not speculate on whether the incident was terrorism-related and they have not issued a description of the attackers.

Officers are now carrying out extra patrols in the area.
