The makers of a knitted Easter topper that has disappeared from a Cromer postbox are urging for its return.

Two local people, who keep their identities a secret, spent many hours creating an adorable seasonal scene, featuring chicks, bunnies, a basket and bunting.

They put the topper on the postbox in Overstrand Road on Wednesday, March 27 ahead of the Easter weekend.

The news was posted on the 'Love Cromer' Facebook group and it was met with anger and disappointment from locals. 

Speaking to us, one of the makers said: "I really expect it to be put back on - generally people do the right thing, don't they?"

Discussing a similar incident with her Christmas topper, she added: "It was a Nativity scene and someone actually cut Mary's arms off to take the baby."
