Two sections and part of the roof of the hide were stolen from a piece of land off Lynford Road.

The area is close to Lynford Arboretum, a renowned Brecks beauty spot which draws bird-watching enthusiasts from across the region keen to spot scarce woodland species such as Lesser Spotted Woodpecker.

It is believed it would have taken some time to dismantle the hide and anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area is asked to contact the Op Solve team at Norfolk Police on 101. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
