Seems that the carcass is still sound, the thatch however has all gone.

The seemingly rather overly zealous fire fighting, three appliances at one point, seems to be not the proximity of any other buildings but the closeness to the B1077 Swaffham to Watton road and some overhead electricity cables.

The quaintly thatched bus stop in South Pickenham has been purposefully set alight, so the fire brigade believes. The suspected arson of the picturesque shelter, believed to have been erected by the South Pickenham Estate, happened around 8pm on Tuesday 20th September, 2011. Any suspicious behaviour should be reported to local police (0845 456 4567).

In Suffolk they just throw hundreds of ducks in the river for fun, thankfully they are of the plastic variety.
Over in the Fens, however, the respect for wildlife, dead or alive, can be somewhat more unusual.

Amongst a stolen broken washing machine and a man returning money he had stolen from a Ex-Serviceman's Club, Sheringham police report that someone telephoned them to say they thought Sammy The Sea Serpent, the inflatable mascot for the 2011 carnival, was 'suspicious'. A slippery suspect surely.
Serpents may well be unusual sea sightings, but the man who complained to the authorities because of crates of fish at a working harbour in Ilfracombe should be less surprised. Disgusted by the smell, the middle aged man also said the dead fish had distressed his children and that the fishermen should be more considerate of holiday makers. The man returned back to his hometown to feed his sprogs on fish fingers before the locals had a chance to lynch the Grockle.
