Coastguards, police and Broads Authority wardens are searching for a suspected missing person along the River Yare at Cantley in Norfolk.

A rare beetle has been discovered on the Norfolk Broads.
The Black Longhorn Beetle (Stictoleptura Scutellata) at How Hill was found on a tall, dead beech trunk in the secret garden at How Hill.
This unusual beetle spends most of its time in the canopy of large trees, but can be found on flowers.
It's the first time the beetle has been spotted in Norfolk.
"The discovery of this conservation priority species shows the success of our work to retain the full age structure of trees, particularly old deadwood which this rare longhorn beetle requires."

A new one million pound wetland will be built in the Norfolk Broads over the next few years.
An area the size of 100 football pitches will be created to home vulnerable birds and wildlife.
The new wetland will provide suitable breeding conditions for wading birds such as lapwings, avocets, redshanks and yellow wagtails. It will also provide a feeding ground for thousands of migrant birds looking to refuel after a long flight.
The RSPB says the project will help create homes for new species as they move to the Broads.
"Wildlife needs space to roam, and this new area of nature reserve will create a vital stepping stone for our wild residents to make a home in other parts of the Broads and provide a feeding ground for thousands of migrant birds looking to refuel after a long flight.
Through this work we are looking forward to continuing on the area's legacy as a crucial safe haven for some of the UK's most vulnerable birds and wildlife."
