An ongoing police operation is taking place on Victoria Road in Great Yarmouth with armed police and dog units in attendance.

Norfolk Police have blocked off parts of the road as the operation continues.

Armed police have been seen to enter a property at the end of the road by Blackfriars Road and before they entered officers shouted “armed police”.

It appeared no arrests were made.

Officers could be seen with a sniffer dog and some police units have been replaced at the scene.

A spokesman for Norfolk police said the situation is still on-going and would not provide any more information for operational reasons.
