  4. Four teens due in court after memorial garden for seven-year-old girl was vandalised

    Four teenagers are to appear in court after a memorial garden was damaged at a Norwich school last month.

    The garden, at Valley Primary Academy, was planted in memory of Summer Grant.

    The seven-year-old girl was killed in March 2016 when a bouncy castle was blown away in high winds at a funfair in Harlow, Essex.

    Four suspects, aged 16-18, have been reported to court for criminal damage. The date for their appearance has not been fixed yet.

    Summer's father described whoever was responsible as being the "scum of the Earth".

    Two people, from Cambridgeshire, were arrested by Essex Police last year on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence and they're due to answer police bail later this month.

  5. More children falling victim to cyber sex crime

    Each week, two children in Norfolk became victims of online sex crime.

    That's according to the NSPCC, which used Freedom of Information requests to police forces to get figures on cyber-related sex crimes against children in England and Wales.

    In the past year, Norfolk Police recorded 100 such crimes, compared to 71 the previous year.

    The charity says it's urging the next government to introduce strict internet safety measures to make child online safety a top priority.

  6. Holiday impulse led to dairy herd

    Earlier we told you how one farmer is selling unpasteurised milk direct to the public, after the squeeze on dairy prices has forced many out of business.

    And last week a small dairy opened in south Norfolk - with just six Jersey cows.

    It's a new venture for Stuart and Rebecca Mayhew, who saw an opportunity to diversify their farm from pig and arable production. They now sell their unpasteurised milk at the farm gate.

    Milk is pasteurised to kill any harmful bacteria, but Rebecca says the risk from milk nowadays is no greater than from shellfish and one of the reasons it's still pasteurised is because supermarkets require milk to have a longer shelf life.

    "Our milk is this morning's... it will go into a mini bulk tank to chill down and then we bottle it later... we're tested every three months by the FSA [Food Standards Agency] and will be introducing our own testing."

    The couple fell in love with Jersey cows while on holiday in Scotland, and initially brought one cow home to their Woodton farm,between Tasburgh and Bungay.

  7. Milking the dairy industry

    You've probably poured some into your morning cuppa or your cereal... but do you ever think about milk?

    Well, today is World Milk Day - highlighting the dairy industry. But with prices remaining fairly static over the last few decades, many of our dairy farmers have packed up - although some are now selling direct to the public.

    Johnny Crickmore set up a shop at his farm near Bungay in the Waveney Valley, with vending machines selling milk, cream and cheese.

    He sells around 180 to 200 litres of raw milk a day, at £1.10 a litre - around the same price as in a supermarket, but with production costs of just 27p he's quids in.

    Because his milk is raw - which means it hasn't been pasteurised - there are restrictions on where it can be sold. Mr Crickmore says raw milk sales will never grow to a level where a dairy farmer's business revolves around it, which makes it a niche product.

    Quote Message: It's frustrating... we put a lot of effort in to our raw milk, a lot of testing. If it's good enough to sell at the farm gate, why can't we sell it in a shop or a restaurant?" from Johnny Crickmore Dairy farmer

  8. Sunrise over Sheringham

    I'm sure not many of you were up in time to see this morning's sunrise, so I thought I'd share this sequence of photos taken by one of our BBC Weather Watchers' "Hopping Frog".

    At 04:36, the sun was just peeping over the horizon at Sheringham:

    Within four minutes, the sky had changed colour, outlining the silhouette of a passing ship.

    Simon Lambert's paid 8 helped the King's Lynn Stars reach second in Speedway's Premiership yesterday.

    The 52-41 win at home to Swindon was the West Norfolk side's fourth victory in a row.

    Lambert only joined the Stars last week, having previously ridden for them for six seasons, and received praise from team manager Dale Allitt for his first appearance back at the Adrian Flux Arena.

    Troy Batchelor enjoyed another fine night against his former employers as he joined skipper Robert Lambert at the top of the Lynn scorechart, while former world champ Chris Holder secured back-to-back heat wins on the way to a paid 10.

  11. Replacement train 'reason behind locked loos'

    Greater Anglia explains that disruption to services is the reason why passengers faced locked loos on a recent journey.

    A spokesman for the rail operator says that rather than cancel the 18:10 London to Norwich service on 19 May, an alternative train was used - but in one section the toilets were out of order.

    It explains that it's very rare for all the loos on a train to be out of order and if this happens, they decide whether to cancel the train or warn customers.

    Quote Message: We apologise for anyone who has suffered as a result. However we'd like to reassure all customers that on an average day, only a very small percentage of our train toilets are out of order." from Greater Anglia spokesperson

  12. Rail passengers caught short

    Greater Anglia says it's upgrading toilets after people were forced to use empty bottles to relieve themselves.

    Passengers claim all the loos were locked on the 18:10 London Liverpool Street train to Norwich on Friday, 19 May.

    The rail operator has apologised for the error, saying it has a "daily focus" of ensuring train toilets are working and clean and is installing fully accessible loos on 30 more of its trains.
