Access to Blakeney Point restricted

Due to the helicopter crash on Tuesday the 7th of January, Norfolk Police confirmed that a USAF helicopter, from RAF Lakenheath, crashed at the north end of East Bank on the Norfolk Wildlife Trust's Cley Marshes nature reserve, adjacent to Blakeney National Nature Reserve. A 400m cordon remains around the crash site which lies to the west of East Bank in marshland between the A149 and the coastline.

Access to Beach Road and East Bank are restricted and there is no coastline access to the crash site. It is not currently possible to access Blakeney Point on foot from Cley beach car park. We anticipate all these restrictions will continue to be in place until at least Monday 13 January. Along with the local community, we have been shocked and saddened by the loss of lives and our thoughts are with the families, friends and colleagues of those affected.
