An anchor on Cromer beach has been a magnet for beach-goers ever since it first appeared this morning.

Cromer fisherman John Davies used his boat to transport it on to the beach.

He said: “I found it about a mile off Cromer and brought it in today. I don’t know anything about how old it is or its history.”

Jane Davis said on social media: “I’m gathering it was towed in by a fishing boat this morning, having been marked by a buoy previously.

“It’s very large and very heavy! Fascinating, though.”
