The latest Bishop of Grimsby has been revealed at the port's fish docks.

The Rev David Court brings experience to the role gained as a churchman in Norfolk - both as vicar of Cromer and honorary canon of Norwich Cathedral, where he has served for 11 years.

His latest appointment was announced to a small throng by the Bishop of Lincoln, the Rt Rev Christopher Lowson

The 55-year-old cleric said he was "hugely honoured and privileged".

Dr Court said: "I'm hugely looking forward to getting to know the people, the area and being part of this community.

"I genuinely want to listen, I want to learn, I want to see the kind of things bishops can be involved in that will make a practical difference to the lives of communities and individuals."

The Grimsby bishopric has been vacant since the Rt Reverend David Rossdale retired at the start of last year.
