Detectives are today continuing their investigations into the death of two people on a boat in Wroxham, on the Norfolk Broads.

Police were called to the scene at Wroxham Broad at 4pm yesterday afternoon, Thursday 9 June, following concerns for safety due to the length of time the vessel had been moored in that location.

On attendance officers found a man in his 60s and a woman in her 50s, and a dog deceased within the boat moored near Wroxham Island.

The boat, which is privately owned, has since been towed away to a local boatyard where officers continue to work with the Marine Accident Investigation Branch to assess the vessel.

A Norfolk Constabulary spokesperson said: ‘The deaths are being treated as unexplained and post mortem examinations are due to take place next week; however, officers do not believe there to be any suspicious circumstances.

No further details regarding the deceased will be released until formal identification and next of kin procedures have been completed.
