Some Norfolk Broads Coverage 'Unhelpful'

6 September 2012, 06:00

Norfolk Police are telling Heart some of the coverage in the national media is not helping their investigation into the death of two people found in the Norfolk broads at the weekend.

Detective Superintendent Jes Fry from the joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team (MIT) said some information published in the national media had been misleading.

He said: "Contrary to reports published in the media, we have not released any information concerning evidence gathered from the scene, nor have we formally identified the deceased male nor released photographs of the deceased.

"We continue to carry out investigations on behalf of the coroner and speculative reporting on this investigation has been unhelpful and some of it extremely distasteful, adding to the distress of the family.

"I would encourage members of the public to follow Norfolk Constabulary updates for factual information."
