Police were called to one of West Norfolk’s busiest roads this morning after concerns were raised for the safety of a man seen walking along it while carrying a cross.

Officers were called to the A17 near Walpole Cross Keys at around 7.40am, where the man was walking towards Lynn.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said they gave safety advice to the man, who told them he was completing a pilgrimage to Walsingham before continuing to London.
