The bodies of the missing parents of a 13-year-old girl found alone on a hire boat in the Norfolk Broads have been recovered by police.

The pair, the teenager's mother and stepfather, were found by police yesterday between Salhouse Broad and Wroxham Broad after a search by divers. Police, who are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident, are treating the deaths as unexplained.

Police said the girl – who was found on the boat unharmed – had been told about the deaths and was being comforted by relatives.

On Saturday, police were called about 5pm by a member of the public concerned about the whereabouts of the boat.

It was found shortly afterwards with just the girl on board.
