A Cambridge University professor walked into a meeting completely nude with the words 'Brexit leaves Britain naked' daubed across her breasts.

Dr Victoria Bateman used the stunt to voice her concerns about the perils of leaving the EU in a meeting the day before the referendum last week.

And despite shocking all those in the room the economics professor managed to sit through the entire two-hour without any mention of her state of undress.

"It is well known to the faculty that she has posed naked but obviously the behaviour here was different. One thing is to pose naked and another to show up naked."

Britain's new state-of-the-art fighter jets have made their first flight over their future home in West Norfolk.

The F-35 Lightnings will be based at RAF Marham from 2018 as part of the newly formed 617 squadron, formerly known as the Dambusters.

The planes are equipped with laser-guided missiles and bombs and have a range of 1,300 miles.

The beauty of the F-35 is that it can do many, many, many missions.

Unlike our legacy platforms that may have been fought to be a fighter or a bomber, this airplane can pretty much do any everything, including intelligence gathering.

So it's a jack-of-all trades, but it's exceptionally good at them all.

– Air Comdr Harv Smyth, Lightning Force Commander

Bereavement charity faces uncertain future

Video report by ITV News Anglia's Tanya Mercer

A charity that helps people deal with bereavement in Suffolk is looking for funding to secure its future.

Cruse in Suffolk will suspend services to all bereaved people as today (1 July) because of lack of local funding from statutory agencies.

The suspension will involve the withdrawal of all bereavement support from new clients in the Suffolk and Great Yarmouth area, due to no longer having the local financial resources.

We have always been active in raising funds to continue the service, but it is now at a point where the funds raised locally aren't enough to provide support to clients and develop the service to meet the client demand in Suffolk.

– Tim Mills, Chair of Cruse Suffolk
