Personal items thought to belong to a couple killed while walking along the A47 in Norfolk have been recovered from the roadside.

Tadas Zaleskas, 26, and Nonita Karajevaite, 24, were both killed on the dual carriageway on Sunday.

One lane of the eastbound carriageway was closed earlier while officers searched the grass verge for clues.

Police are treating Ms Karajevaite's death as suspicious, believing she may have been pushed into the traffic.

Det Ch Insp Paul Durham said the search had "recovered a number of personal items which we believe belonged to the couple, including documents, clothing and a pair of glasses.

"These items will now be examined to see whether they can provide us with any clues."

The couple, originally from Lithuania, were engaged and had lived in nearby Emneth.

Both died when they were hit by a silver Kia car as they walked along the eastbound carriageway near Terrington St John at 14:15 BST.
