    An investigation by Norfolk police into a cyber attack on Norwich Airport is continuing.

    In November, BBC Radio Norfolk received a call from a man claiming he had hacked into the airport's website to prove it was vulnerable to attack.

    The man, who called himself "His Royal Gingerness", said he'd heard another hacker had planned to put fake bomb alerts on the site at Christmas, potentially causing chaos.

     A 29-year-old man was arrested in Dover, in February, in connection with the cyber attack.  He was given bail until this month, and police now say he has been rebailed until August 1.

  6. Broads deaths: 'Growing belief' that carbon monoxide may have been factor

    BBC Look East

    Although investigations continue into the deaths of the two people found on a boat on the River Bure at Wroxham Broad, there's a growing belief that their deaths may have been due to carbon monoxide poisoning, say from a cooker or a heater on board.

    Forensic officers' vehicles at the scene

    That, of course, if yet to be established, and police stress the deaths continue to be treated as "unexplained".   

    Today forensic teams have been at work at the site of a boatyard at the Norfolk Broads Yacht club, where the boat was towed. The Marine Accident Investigation Branch has been assessing the vessel.

    King's Lynn Town have launched a competition to find the club's first ever mascot. 

    They're asking local primary schools to get involved in designing a new character to become part of the match day entertainment at The Walks next season.  

    Manager Gary Setchell told me he looks forward to a "big old teddy bear high-fiving me every time we score"...

  9. Climber was taking 'very serious risks' says travel expert

    Yesterday we reported news of the death of Norwich man Aiden Webb, 22, who fell while solo-climbing a mountain in Vietnam.

    Today travel expert Simon Calder has told us that Mr Webb was taking "very serious risks" climbing the mountain on his own.

    Aiden Webb

    Mr Calder, senior travel editor for The Independent, said people travelling to relatively poor countries could not expect the same standard of search and rescue efforts as in the west.

    He said: "I'm sorry to say if his girlfriend goes to the police and says 'My boyfriend is lost on the mountain' they're going to say 'Well, what do you expect us to do about it?'. 

    "That sounds terribly harsh but I'm afraid they're poorly resourced; they don't have the same scope to organise big rescues and their response."

  10. Wroxham deaths: More details released

    The man and woman found dead on a boat on the Norfolk Broads were aged in their 60s and 50s respectively, police have said.

    Officers were called to the privately-owned boat at about 16:00 yesterday. The body of a dog was also found on the boat.

    Investigations are continuing.

  11. 'Disney' kittens dumped by roadside

    Five kittens have been rescued by the RSPCA after they were found dumped by the roadside in Attleborough last week.

    The five kittens in a box

    The three female and two male five-week-old kittens were discovered in a cardboard box on West Carr Road, by a passer-by who heard them mewing.

    The box that contained the kittens

    The kittens have been named Nemo, Bruce, Dory, Flo and Squirt after characters from Disney's Finding Nemo. RSPCA officer Paige Burnham says they're doing well, and "hopefully will be ready to be rehomed in a few weeks".

  12. Wroxham boat deaths: Broads Authority rangers were first on scene

    The Broads Authority has issued this statement from its chief executive John Packman regarding the deaths of a man, a woman and a dog on a boat at Wroxham Island.

    It says: "We received a call from a member of the public at 16:00 who was also advised to call the police while we mobilised. Two of our rangers were first on scene at 16:20 and we provided support to the emergency services.

    "They transported police officers and paramedics to the private cruiser, advised police on the details of the vessel and closed the river while maintaining access for officers as required throughout the evening."The boat was recovered by rangers and the river was reopened at 21:30 when we were stood down but we will continue to help with any ongoing investigations."Our thoughts and sympathies are very much with all those affected by this tragedy.”    

  13. Watch: Police at scene of 'unexplained' boat deaths

  14. Peregrine falcon chick died following 'harassment' from dominant female

    Back to the sad news about the loss of the peregrine falcon chick from the Norwich Cathedral spire.

    Nigel Middleton, from the Hawk and Owl Trust said the bird left the nest box - as seen in the video below -  yesterday morning and landed on a very low wall.

    "We had to intervene and take her back up to the bell tower so that the parents, the male bird, could actually bring her food," he said.

    "And all things were going well and then she started to get a lot of harassment from the dominant female that we now have there, the newcomer and unfortunately that newcomer treated her not as an existing fledgling chick but as an intruding peregrine falcon."
