  9. Son of former PCC jailed for tractor death crash

    The son of Norfolk's former police and crime commissioner (PCC) who killed a woman with his tractor has been jailed for 42 months following a retrial.

    Henry Bett

    Henry Bett, 28, son of Norfolk's former PCC Stephen Bett, was found guilty ofcausing the death of 43-year-old Rebecca Brown by dangerous driving at a retrial at Cambridge Crown Court this month.

    He had been jailed for three-and-a-half years in 2015 but the conviction was quashed at London's Court of Appeal in September 2016 and a retrial was ordered.

    The jury at this month's retrial found Bett guilty by a majority verdict of 10 to two and he was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court today.

    Bett, of Hall Lane, Thornham, near Hunstanton, was also given a five-year driving ban.

  10. Take That concert: 'Brilliant night, brilliant crowd'

    Tens of thousands of people enjoyed seeing Take That in Norwich last night - and it seems the boys themselves had a good time.

    Gary Barlow and Mark Owen took to Twitter after the concert at Carrow Road to say thank you to the "brilliant crowd" and how much they enjoyed their first visit to the city.

    They will be back on stage tonight for their second Norwich date as part of the Wonderland tour.

  11. Take That concert: 'Even more trains will be running'

    Greater Anglia has said extra trains will be running tonight over and above additional services after last night's "chaos".

    Take That fans at Norwich station

    As we've been reporting, Take That fans faced misery last night after they left the concert at Carrow Road.

    There were reports that the station was "rammed", trains were "packed solid" and little information was given to passengers waiting at Norwich Station.

    Greater Anglia said there were additional services, last trains were re-timed and trains were made longer but the numbers were higher than expected.

    Kerri Worrall, from the rail company, said: "We knew the trains were going to be very busy but the crowds were very large.

    "We will source additional trains for tonight and we will see if we can find another train to go to from Norwich to Ipswich. Buses will be on standby again.

    "Our team at Norwich station will be doing everything they possibly can to manage those crowds well and look after people and make sure they get people away from Norwich station as quickly as they possibly can."

  12. Canaries add 'power' to defence

    Jay Lawrence

    BBC Radio Norfolk

    Norwich City have added to their back four with the signing of German centre-back Christoph Zimmerman.

    The 24-year-old joins from Borussia Dortmund II on an initial two year deal, following former boss Daniel Farke, who left the German side for the Canaries last month.

    Zimmerman captained Dortmund to the best defensive record in the league, and will now look to make an immediate impact on a Canaries team that failed to establish a regular central defensive pair last season.

  13. Take That concert: Trains were 'chaos'

    Take That fans who had traveled to Carrow Road faced "chaos" as they headed home.

    Take That fans at Norwich Station

    Greater Anglia had retimed its last services to Cambridge, Lowestoft, Sheringham, Ipswich and Great Yarmouth.

    But as concert-goers poured out of the football stadium, Norwich Station became full.

    Adrianne Adams, who was at the station, described it as "unprepared" and "shambolic" while Lindsay Sams said it was "not good enough".

    Cherese Bradnum, who lives in Ipswich, said the concert was "absolutely amazing" but the 23:25 train back home was "rammed".

    She said: "We couldn't get anywhere to sit, my daughter had to sit in the luggage compartment.

    "There was just disbelief that Greater Anglia hadn't thought about the numbers of people coming out of Carrow Road.

    "It was a case of, we are here, we had a brilliant night, we are not going to let it ruin our night, but people couldn't believe it."

    The BBC has contacted Greater Anglia for a comment.

  14. Take That concert: A night to 'never forget'

    It was a night to "never forget" as more than 30,000 people watched Take That in Norwich last night.

    Take That at Carrow Road

    Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald entertained the crowds with their latest hits as well as all-time favourites as they performed at Carrow Road as part of their Wonderland tour.

    Our reporter Alex Pope, who was there, said: "The concert was amazing, just brilliant. A visual treat with some amazing choreography and staging."

    There was heightened security around Norwich City Football Club's stadium following the recent terror attacks.

    They will be playing there again this evening.

  15. Kerri McAuley murder: 'On-off partner' to be sentenced

    A man who was found guilty of murdering his "on-off partner" by bludgeoning her to death will be sentenced today.

    Joe Storey

    Joe Storey, 27, had denied murdering Kerri McAuley, 32, who was found dead at Southalls Way, Norwich, on 8 January, but admitted manslaughter.

    Storey was high on cocaine when he punched mother-of-two Ms McAuley after a row about an ex-girlfriend.

    Ms McAuley had 19 separate injuries to her head and face.

    The jury at Norwich Crown Court took less than an hour to find Storey guilty.
