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.
