Police have sealed off a bungalow in Costessey near Norwich this morning to carry out searches in connection with an on-going investigation.

Two men, aged in their 60s and from the Norwich area, have been arrested in connection with the allegations.

Due to the complexity of the enquiry the searches, both inside and outside the address including the garden areas, are expected to last a number of days.

Det Chief Inspector Ross McDermott said: "As part of a wider investigation into allegations of an historic nature, we have received information requiring us to make detailed searches at this address."

"The inquiry is highly sensitive and, for operational reasons, we cannot give any further details at this time.

"However, we can confirm that this is not connected to any current cold case enquiries locally or nationally and is not a murder or suspicious death investigation.

"The police activity will inevitably create some concern locally and both detectives and local uniformed officers will be in the local area to answer any queries and to offer reassurance."

A number of police units will be seen at the address over the coming days including specialist search trained police officers and Crime Scene Investigators.

If anyone has concerns or wants to speak to the police about this matter, they are asked to contact Norfolk Police on the police non-emergency number 101.
