Police are investigating after the body of a woman was found in a lake in the grounds of the University of East Anglia in Norwich.

The lake is in a part of the university known as the University of East Anglia (UEA) Broad, which is on a site west of the city.

Police were called to the University of East Anglia in Norwich at 8.40am today following reports that a body had been found in the lake on the site.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: "Emergency services are on scene and the area has been sealed off."

The force has not yet confirmed the age of the person involved.

While some summer camps are currently being held on the campus, most students have left for the summer holidays.

Graduation ceremonies and leaving balls took place last month.

A UEA spokeswoman said: "We were informed that a body was reported in University Broad shortly before 9.00am.

"We have no further details at this time. The university will be fully supporting the police with their inquiries."
