    The car changed hands several times and had been repainted so much that paint weighing 50lbs (23kg) had to be removed from the body during restoration work. The buyer's details are not being made public, auctioneer Bonhams said.

    Steve Morphew, who chairs the Norwich Highways Agency Committee, said it's aware of the possible knock-on effects, but said most traffic will "go to the roads it's supposed to go on, and that's the ring road".

    If you're just catching up, here's the stories in the news today:

    • A former youth worker jailed seven years ago for abusing boys over a 20-year period has had his prison sentence extended after further victims came forward
    • Fire crews tackling a blaze at Norwich International Airport managed to avert "complete devastation"
    • A petition opens on the Downing Street website calling for the withdrawal of proposals for devolution in East Anglia
  8. Petition to withdraw devolution proposals

    Andrew Sinclair

    BBC Look East political correspondent

    A petition has been opened on the Downing Street website which calls on the government to withdraw its proposals for devolution in East Anglia.

    The petition, which currently has more than 100 signatures, calls the plan to give East Anglia a directly-elected mayor "fundamentally undemocratic... without full consultation with the people who will be effected by the proposals". 

    The government says devolution will give local communities more of a say over planning and transport matters. It says devolution will be democratic, because the mayor will be elected by residents in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

    Watch manager Rob Burling said one of the two aircraft was removed amid concerns about the fire spreading. The blaze continued for 12 hours and crews remained on site through the night "because of the nature and complexity of the incident", he added.  

    Norwich Fire and Rescue Service said the cause was not thought to be suspicious. A spokesman for the airport said services were not affected.

    County councillor Mick Castle said the authority always tries to avoid roadworks in the holiday period, but "if the work isn't done before the first week of April, the budget for it will be gone".

    A number of businesses have told BBC Radio Norfolk they are concerned the roadworks will affect trade during the Easter break.

    The headlines this lunchtime:

    • Henry Day, awarded the MBE for his work with children, has had his prison sentence extended after admitting a string of child sexual offences dating back decades
    • Fire crews who tackled a fire which took hold in a hangar at Norwich International Airport averted "complete devastation"
    • Businesses on Great Yarmouth's seafront say roadworks which started this week could have a serious impact on trade 
  17. Henry Day: 'Accepted his own sexuality' says judge

    Sentencing Henry Day, Judge Anthony Bate said the defendant had "accepted his own sexuality" during the past seven years in prison.

    The three-year sentence given to the child sex offender will run alongside his previous term handed to him in 2009, but because he was close to release it means he will serve longer behind bars.

    Exterior of Norwich Crown Court

    Judge Bate said: "The defendant has gained a measure of insight into his offending and has accepted his own sexuality and that he was guilty of the 2009 offences."  

  18. Henry Day: 'A model prisoner'

    Henry Day had been a "model prisoner" since he was jailed in 2009 for systematically abusing boys over a 20-year period, said his lawyer Andrew Thompson.

    Day, 76, was given a new three-year sentence at Norwich Crown Court today after further victims of abuse came forward.

    Mr Thompson said his client was in poor health and currently undergoing diagnosis for a brain injury. Mr Thompson added that "a lot of good things were done by his organisation... it was well regarded and one should not ignore the good it did over many years".

  19. Henry Day: 'Victims were vulnerable'

    Many of Henry Day's victims were vulnerable, in care or from disadvantaged backgrounds, today's sentencing hearing heard.

    The jailed sex child offender was handed a further three years in prison at Norwich Crown Court after admitting seven new counts of sexual assault relating to four boys, dating back to the 1970s.
