A baby in a 'stable' condition was taken to hospital by air ambulance.

The ambulance was parked near Dave's Fish and Chip Restaurant in Co-operative Street, nearby businesses said.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said: 'An ambulance, two rapid response vehicles, an ambulance officer and the air ambulance were called to an incident in Co-operative Street, Sheringham following reports of an infant with a serious medical condition. The infant was transported to hospital by air ambulance.'
