Prince William made an unexpected visit to North Norfolk this week.

The popular royal was called out to Great Ryburgh, near Fakenham, with the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).

The Duke of Cambridge started working for the charity as a pilot in 2015 but announced he will leave later this summer to concentrate more on his royal duties.

A spokesman for the EAAA confirmed that one of its helicopters attended the scene.

An eyewitness said: 'The Prince waited with the helicopter for around 40 minutes before taking off and waving to onlookers.'
