Police are warning underage drinking or drug use won't be tolerated at this weekend's Sundown Festival in Norwich.

Up to 40,000 people are expected at the Norfolk Showground to enjoy the line-up.

Chase and Status headline today with Jason Derulo closing the event on Sunday.

My main advice for festivalgoers this weekend is to look after yourselves, know your limits and look after each other.

Please don't leave expensive items in your tent. Secure your mobile phone, we have a lot of those go missing and don't give thieves a chance to operate.

– Chief Inspector Nathan Clark, Norfolk Police


Moxey has no problem with Ed Balls' Strictly appearance

Norwich City Chief Executive Jez Moxey says chairman Ed Balls' decision to appear on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing will not effect the day-to-day running of the club.

The former shadow chancellor upset many Canaries fans by committing to the show this summer while the transfer window was still ongoing.

Moxey insists that he has no problem with Balls pursuing other ventures outside of football.

"Ed's role is not an executive role, he is a non-executive chairman," he told ITV News Anglia.

"I report into him so the fact that he's decided to participate in Strictly isn't going to effect what we do on a day-to-day basis and doesn't hamper us in any shape or form."
