Previous pictures taken by Kate - a talented amateur photographer - showed Prince George with his sister when she was just two weeks old.

Charlotte has been protected from the public eye by her parents since her birth in May this year, with only the occasional release of official photos.

Arsenal to take 14 minute flight to Norwich

Arsenal are flying to Norwich for their Premier League game this weekend - a 118-mile trip that takes just 14 minutes.

The club will fly from London Luton airport, a 20 minute drive from their Hertfordshire training camp, to Norwich International airport ahead of their 4:15pm kick-off on Sunday against Norwich.

Arsene Wenger has defended the decision

The move has been criticised by environmental campaigners but manager Arsene Wenger has defended the decision.

“When we made the decision there was some road work planned – sometimes the access to Norwich is difficult,” Wenger insisted.

“We do not fly a lot any more. We take the train or coach. This is an exception.”

A paramedic from Norfolk has gone into the record books by pulling a car more than two miles single handedly.

Ross Filby, who works for the East of England Ambulance Service, has earned himself a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

He did so by pulling a response vehicle round seven laps of the runway at the former RAF station at Coltishall near Norwich.

In setting the record, he was also raising money for the Norfolk Accident Rescue Service.

Nars volunteers carry specialist equipment designed to cope with the most challenging of medical emergencies, and are called upon by the ambulance service to help patients in the most serious conditions.

Detectives investigating the murder of a 6-year-old boy in Cambridgeshire 21 years ago, say they're "closing in" on his killers.

Rikki Neave's body was found in woodland near his home in Peterborough in 1994.

The case was re-opened earlier this year and his mother Ruth Neave says she's confident she will get justice for her son.

Officers want to identify two teenage boys - seen leaving the woods on the day Rikki's body was found.

An artists impression of two boys police want to speak to.

They also say drug use was common place on the estate at the time and are keen to hear from any professionals who may have been helping people and given information about the murder.

"There were a number of people on the estate back in 1994 who were suffering with drug addiction and we know there were a lot of professional workers, drugs workers, social workers up on the estate and we believe that some of those people may have had information that had been passed to them or confided in them and they may have thought at the time that it was irrelevant, but now, that information could be crucial and key."
