Roe deer

Chris is right, also the shape of the body is wrong, muntjac look more dog shaped and the hind legs are longer than the forelegs giving a distinctive shape.

Norfolk muntjac

There are lots of muntjac in Norfolk, look out for a deer about the size of a large collie whose rear is much higher than its haunches. They can be very tame, I've seen them feeding on the verge of busy roads.
