Ofsted says that three schools in Norfolk were not tipped off about up-and-coming inspections.

Great Yarmouth Primary Academy, Thetford Academy and Ormiston Victory Academy denied the allegations that they received more than the regulation half-day notice.

An Ofsted report concluded that there was no evidence to support the original accusations.

Suffolk couple who lost their son to Meningitis raise awareness of symptoms

Caroline and Adrian Grove's son Cayden was just 20 days old when he fell ill in 2008.

A couple from Suffolk who lost their son to Meningitis are trying to raise awareness of the symptoms.

Caroline and Adrian Grove's son Cayden was just 20 days old when he fell ill in 2008 - but he was not diagnosed until it was too late, two days later he died.

They are supporting meningitis awareness week.

"Our son Cayden had late onset GBS, meningitis and septicaemia in 2008. He first showed signs of illness at 20 days old. He was cold, pale, panting and being sick after feeds. He was also very grumpy during the day, with a high pitched cry. We never knew these were signs of infection and the hospital staff didn't pick up on it (staying on SCBU due to prematurity). He crashed and the doctors gave him lots of medication to control blood pressure and ventilator. He was transferred the next day to a NICU in a bigger hospital. There the doctors found him to be unresponsive to touch, his eyes were not moving, he was not breathing for himself and the doctors felt that he was too poorly to recover. A scan the following day confirmed that he had severe brain damage and we removed life support. He passed away very quickly."

It's a curious building perched closed to the North Norfolk coast but it played a vital role in the Second World War.

The Langham Dome just a new miles from Blakeney hid a secret that helped Britain deal with the aerial bombardment from Germany.

World Cup 1966 & the East

The East of England may not have hosted any of the 31 fixtures staged during the 1966 World Cup, but there was still a role to play for the region.

A handful of nations, including semi-finalists Portugal and finalists West Germany, based themselves in the ITV Anglia patch.

Portugal stayed at Harlow, while the Homestead Court Hotel in Welwyn Garden City was used by the Germans although they trained in Stevenage in the run up to the final.
