Two men have been arrested in connection with a series of cooking oil thefts in north Norfolk.  

It follows a police investigation into the repeated theft of waste cooking oil from a business in Westgate Street in Blakeney.  

Oil had been taken from a locked compound on the premises on four occasions since the end of March.  

On Sunday, May 15, officers stopped a van on The Quay, Blakeney, containing a large quantity of waste cooking oil.  

A 36-year-old man and a 39-year-old man were arrested at the scene on suspicion of theft and taken to Aylsham police station for questioning.  

Both men were later released on bail while enquiries continue.
