An investigation has been launched after six dead ducks were found on the verge of a busy road in Diss.
RSPCA inspectors attended the scene in Skelton Road today following the report of the dead mallard ducks, which were discovered by a local resident.
Post mortems are set to be carried out by vets at the East Winch wildlife hospital, near King's Lynn, to establish the cause of the birds' deaths. The bodies were discovered on Tuesday morning on the grass verge in Skelton Road, near the Victoria Road junction.
Sophie Wilkinson, RSPCA spokeswoman said that inspectors for the charity believed that the duck deaths occurred as a result of a collision with a car.
