  2. Weather: Dry tonight, but a few showers and hail possible

    BBC Look East weather

    The last of any showers dying away to leave a dry night across the BBC East region with clear spells and mainly light west to north-westerly winds.

    Temperatures for many of us staying in double figures, but some spots could fall to around 9C (48F).

    Apart from a few light showers, Saturday should begin largely fine and dry with some sunshine but eventually heavier showers will move west to east and some of these could produce hail and thunder.

    The winds could become quite blustery for a time with isolated gusts of 40mph. Top temperatures around 21C (70F).

    Sunday should be fine and dry with sunny spells. Cloud is expected to eventually thicken from the west and temperatures again climbing to around 21C (70F).

  5. Rarely-spotted butterfly... spotted in Norfolk!

    BBC News

    One of the country's rarest butterflies has been spotted at Sheringham Park.

    Your best chance of seeing a Purple Emperor in the UK is in larger woodland areas in southern England.

    But the National Trust says there have been two sightings in tree tops at Sheringham in recent weeks.

    Purple Emperor butterfly.

    The National Trust's butterfly specialist Matthew Oates said: "At Sheringham Park the National Trust is looking after the sallows the butterfly favours.

    "Recently, people have worked out how to look for this elusive giant, which is why it's been discovered at Sheringham.

    "I'm delighted that Norfolk has declared itself well and truly Purple."

    The Butterfly Conservation charity's website says it is difficult to record the size of the Purple Emperor population, but they are usually only found in woodlands in south and south east England, and Norfolk is the furthest north they have been found.

    A spokesman said there had been a long-term decline since the 1970s, but strong signs of recovery in the last 10 years.

  6. Farm installs vending machine to stop egg thefts

    Stuart Bailey

    BBC News

    A family-run egg farm near Wymondham has had to install a vending machine because so many people were abusing its honesty box system.

    Cavick House Farm had been relying on customers to pay the correct amount - but that was costing them about £150 a week in stolen eggs.

    Egg vending machine

    Julie Barber, who runs the farm, said: "We ran the honesty box for about seven years in our little egg shed.

    "We have 16,000 free range hens producing eggs for supermarkets but, to try and boost our income a little, we decided to try and sell them from a shed.

    "But in the last couple of years the figures haven’t been adding up.

    "It is a shame, but we wanted to keep selling to our loyal customers and we thought we’d turn a negative into a positive and keep the egg sales going by installing a vending machine."

  7. Forecast for the day ahead: Cloudy but dry

    Elizabeth Rizzini

    BBC Look East weather

    It'll be a largely fine day across the BBC East region, with some sunny spells, especially at first.

    However some cloud is expected to bubble up through the day, and whilst this could bring one or two light showers, most places should stay day.

  8. Stuart Webber says Norwich City want to sign another midfielder

    Jack Reeve

    BBC Radio Norfolk sport

    Norwich City's sporting director Stuart Webber has said that the club want to sign another midfielder.

    That comes after his appearance on BBC Radio Norfolk's show - The Scrimmage.

    The Canaries travel to Fulham tomorrow for the first game of the Championship season with a new-look team after the shake-up at the club over the summer.

    Harrison Reed and Mario Vrančić have already been recruited by Webber for midfield cover, but that doesn't seem to be enough.

    Webber said: "We'd certainly like to add another midfield player. Daniel [Farke - head coach] likes to play three in there and the squad is already stretched so we need numbers."

  15. Bid to stop lead thieves targeting county's churches

    As we've been reporting, a new scheme has been launched to help combat the continued number of lead thefts from the Norfolk's churches.

    Here are some cases when thieves have struck:

    • In October last year, St Nicholas Church in North Lopham was preparing to put on its knitted bible display when thieves stripped half the lead from the roof during the night
    • St Bartholomew Church, Sloley, near North Walsham, had its lead stolen just days after Christmas 2016
    • Lead was stolen from the roof and a window at St Mary's Church in Baconsthorpe in April. St Mary's Church in Northrepps was targeted in the same month
    • Raiders stripped lead from Little Massingham Church, near King's Lynn, in January for the third time.
