A no-fly zone is to be enforced over the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Norfolk home following a request by the security services.

The development is a move to ensure the safety of William and Kate and their family who spend much of their time at Anmer Hall on the Queen's Sandringham estate.

In the summer their communications secretary, Jason Knauf, highlighted privacy concerns in a detailed public letter, claiming paparazzi had been going to "extreme lengths" to capture images of the couple's children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The no-fly zone has been imposed by the Department of Transport. It states: "The Secretary of State has decided it is necessary to restrict flying in the vicinity of Anmer Hall, Norfolk, having regard to the security considerations associated with this location by reason of it being the residence of members of the royal family".
