  5. Millions to be invested in mental health facilities

    More than £10m is being invested in mental health facilities in Suffolk and Norfolk over the next two years.

    HQ of Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust

    It's part of a three year plan from the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust , which involves more than £13m worth of work.

    So far a third of a million has been spent on Mariner House in Ipswich, making it more accessible and user-friendly, and a new unit, costing more than £800,000, has opened for young people with acute mental health needs at Carlton Court in Lowestoft. 

    Over the next two years other facilities will be upgraded, and there'll be improvements made to the trust's IT system. 

    Some of money that's being used has come from the sale of the main part of the St Clement's Hospital site in east Ipswich.

  6. Demands for 200-mile fishing limit may fail after Brexit, MEP says

    Patrick Byrne

    BBC News

    Fears are growing that Brexit could fail to bring back the freedom of the seas enjoyed by Norfolk fishing fleets in times past. 

    The UKIP spokesman on fishing has been in King's Lynn today to meet local fishermen and call for European boats to be barred from fishing in British waters. 

    King's Lynn fishing boats

    Yorks & Lincs MEP Mike Hookem told fishermen and processors that he wanted to see the 200-mile fishing limit re-established so that the UK fishing industry could be revived. 

    But East Anglian UKIP MEP Stewart Agnew said he feared the British government wouldn't fight to get the fishery limits back to where they were in the 1970s. 

    Processor Stephen Williamson told the local fishing industry meeting he wanted the quota restrictions abolished and British fishermen given sole rights to the fish in territorial waters.

    "Officers have completed thousands of hours of inquiries to find Corrie and, through the work that has been completed over the past few months, we have gathered a substantial amount of information which will inform both our own and any potential HSE investigation as we move forward."
