A 31 year-old man from Walcott who told his victims he was terminally ill in order to steal from them has been sentenced to 20 month imprisonment.

Andrews was charged following the theft of electrical equipment including an iPad and an Xbox Connect from two separate victims.
He began relationships with his victims, telling them that his terminally ill and suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of serving as a Royal Marine in Afghanistan – neither of which is true.

Warnings and alerts remain in place for the Suffolk and Essex coast.
The body of a man has been discovered in the sea at Walcott off the Norfolk Coast.
A member of the public found the body of the man floating in the water close to the Coast Road around half past ten on Saturday morning.
The death is currently being treated as unexplained.
