Police investigating the deaths of a couple on the A47 in Norfolk have found a number of personal items following a roadside search.

It's often said that Yorkshire is "God's Own County", but Norfolk may have now stolen that title after a remarkable image of a God-like bearded man was captured over Snettisham this week.

The picture was taken by amateur photographer Jeremy Fletcher during a routine stroll along the beach.

Mr Fletcher was shocked when he peered through the lens to see the figure admiring the Norfolk coastline.

"I realised the image looked remarkably like a face of a man with a beard so I took a number of shots on my phone. The face appeared to be looking back towards the shore.

The obvious comment is that it looks like God but it could also be Sean Connery or Karl Marx."
