  4. Police issue appeal following two-vehicle collision

    Police are appealing for witnesses following a collision between two vehicles on the A149 this morning.

    Emergency services attended the scene on the Caister bypass, near the Princes of Wales Road junction, shortly after 11:00 following reports of a collision between a silver Vauxhall Astra and a black Mini.

    The Mini's occupant suffered serious facial injuries and was airlifted to the Norwich and Norwich University Hospital for treatment. The occupant of the Astra, who suffered chest, leg and hand injuries, was taken to hospital for treatment.

    The A149 was closed while emergency services dealt with the incident, reopening shortly after 16:00.

  5. RAF Marham attack 'almost certainly terrorism', claims former army commander

    The former commanding officer of the Royal Anglian Regiment, Col Richard Kemp, says he can't think of any motive other than terrorism for the attempted abduction of an RAF Marham serviceman.

    "The description of the individuals is of either Middle Eastern or Asian origin which would certainly suggest the profile that's most common to Islamic terrorists operating here in the United Kingdom," he said.

    "So I think it's highly likely that with somebody in the vicinity of a military base - obviously a military person out running - attempted abduction is almost certainly going to be terrorism."

    Richard Kemp

    He said the attacks were "obviously" directed at air bases connected with bombing raids on Iraq and Syria.

    "We should not seek to appease these people; we should not become afraid of them, we should respond to their attempts at aggression against us with far harder aggression against them," he said.

    "The last thing we need is to be beaten by these people - they are not capable of beating us and we should stand up to them in every possible way we can." 

  6. Watch: Canaries look backwards for inspiration

    Today we've brought you news that Norwich City have released a new third kit that is sure to divide opinion.

    They've taken inspiration from the shirt they wore during the inaugural season of the Premier League when they finished third.

    The green and yellow flecked shirt drew derision from fans, but has gone on to become something of a design classic.

    The club will be hoping the new shirt brings as much luck as its predecessor.

    He added: "They've been working with us and liaising with us throughout this inquiry.... at this time there's no information or intelligence which has declared this a counter-intelligence investigation."

    Quote Message: This inquiry is not limited to the vicinity of RAF Marham - any routes beyond the village, into west Norfolk, south into Suffolk and Cambridgeshire - any avenues out of Norfolk, then we'd be looking." from Nick Dean Assistant Chief Constable
