Two bodies recovered from water at beauty spot

The bodies of two men have been recovered at a popular beauty spot.

Emergency services were alerted at 4.30pm to reports that a man had got into difficulties while in the water at Bawsey Pits in west Norfolk. Once there, they were told another man was missing.

After a search involving firefighters, paramedics, police and RAF search and rescue, officers confirmed tonight the discovery of the men, who have not been identified.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: "Both bodies were discovered within the water and inquiries continue into the circumstances surrounding their deaths."

Police have asked people to stay away from the area.

Swimming is banned at the beauty spot, which is popular with sunseekers, but many ignore warning signs.
