A popular seaside attraction has been stolen.

The land train, popular with children and families in Lowestoft, runs up and down the South Beach promenade on the seafront ferrying passengers to and from the different ends of the beach, stopping at Royal Plain, Claremont Pier, and Kensington Gardens.

It is understood the container which houses the train overnight near The Gardens Tea Rooms on Kirkley Cliff Road may have been broken into last night.

The vehicle, according to a Facebook post about the incident, would have required a large lorry with a crane to be moved.

The train initially came to Lowestoft as part of an economic regeneration plan which coincided with the completion of a £3.5 million coastal protection scheme in 2016.
