In Downham, one nearby resident said it looked as if "the entire Norfolk Constabulary" was in the area.

She said: "It's ever so quiet round here normally.

"We were sitting there and there were all these flashing lights. We thought it must have been an accident and they just kept coming and coming. I've never seen anything like it.

"I've lived here 17 years since these houses were new. We all get on ever so well and look out for each other."

Another woman, who was walking to school with her children said it was "absolutely shocking".

She added: "It's normally such a lovely area."
