A drop-in centre for servicemen and women at risk of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has opened in Norfolk.

Soldiers, sailors and aircrew will be encouraged to call in and share their experiences at the King's Lynn centre.

Trained volunteers will then guide them towards the right treatment.

Tom Weston, the centre manager, said: "A lot of people just want to speak to someone about their experiences in an environment where they feel safe."

The Bridge for Heroes charity has set up the centre and hopes to run similar projects in Cromer and Hunstanton.
