A 50-year-old crisp packet has been found on a Norfolk beach.

Kerry Hemsworth made the staggering find while walking along the coast at Caister.

The ready salted Golden Wonder crisp packet dated back to 1967, with the price of '5D' and details of a competition still clearly visible.

Kerry said she was astonished to see that the packet was older than her.

"The prizes on offer all those years ago very generous - a Triumph Herald estate car, four berth caravan, speedboat.

"I couldn't quite believe the packet was genuine but I've been in touch with Golden Wonder and they say it is. Unfortunately they haven't offered me any crisps yet, but I'm keeping everything crossed."
