Norfolk Police have used social media to thank a 16-strong stag party who help them push a police vehicle and boat trailer out of the mud on the Norfolk Broads.

The Broads Beat truck and boat trailer became stranded at the weekend until the men stepped in to help.

Police officers said on Instagram: "We'd like to say a HUGE thank you to this stag party of 16 who helped our Broads Beat officers in their moment of need! They all mucked in to help."

The Norfolk and Suffolk Broads will be known as the Broads National Park following a landmark decision by the Broads Authority.

The authority voted by an overwhelming majority to brand the area as a National Park after 79% of people it consulted approved the proposal.

Chief Executive of the Broads Authority John Packman said he was “absolutely delighted” that the area would benefit from being clearly identified as a National Park.
