"I can confirm that we have officers at the scene of a helicopter crash on the Salthouse marshes in north Norfolk. The helicopter has been confirmed as a U.S. Air Force Pave Hawk HH-60 helicopter. The helicopter had a crew of four, and sadly at this time we believe all four members of the crew had died."
