People in Norfolk are being urged to take part in a huge study to try to find a cure for Parkinsons disease. Mark Whitworth was diagnosed two years ago when he was just 38. A one-time boxer he noticed when he began to get slower. He's worked really hard to come to terms with his condition.
The hosepipe ban is in place and for towns like Sheringham, it means no floral decorations in the town. But it won't be Norfolk In Gloom - Joan Thame, chair of Sheringham in Bloom is looking for alternatives. Here she is standing in the rain (!) by one of the hanging basket posts in the town centre.
There was a lot happening on Angel Road yesterday. First the local stores were robbed. A man threatened staff with a knife before cutting the cable to the till and running outside where he took the contents and ran off towards Constitution Hill. Any information to Norwich CID on 101. Later that day just down the road two people were rescued from a burning flat. At Rackheath Industrial Estate they're just finishing the latest building called 'The Cube' because it is. It's also very envirnmentally friendly. They've also taken on an apprentice who'll be trained in all kinds of construction work. Shaun Catterall is the contracts manager.
We had a call to the station aout a lost dog. David Farman (here with his wife Debbie and the dogs) breeds wire haired pointers and one of the young ones is Harley who ran off at such a pace when he spotted a skylark that he yanked the five metre training lead from Davids grasp. He then continued running. Friends and neighbours helped in the search but Harley turned up safe and sound the next morning as though nothing was wrong!
