A bungalow is being searched in connection with a "sensitive" and "historic" police investigation in Norfolk.

The home, on Olive Road, Costessey, has been sealed off while officers search "inside and outside", police said.

Specialist teams are expected to be at the property for a number of days.

Two men, in their 60s and from the Norwich area, have been arrested in connection with allegations which police have declined to reveal.

Det Ch Insp Ross McDermott said: "As part of a wider investigation into allegations of an historic nature, we have received information requiring us to make detailed searches at this address.

"The inquiry is highly sensitive and, for operational reasons, we cannot give any further details at this time.

"However, we can confirm that this is not connected to any current cold case enquiries locally or nationally and is not a murder or suspicious death investigation.

"The police activity will inevitably create some concern locally and both detectives and local uniformed officers will be in the local area to answer any queries and to offer reassurance."
