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.

It's now been restored and turned into a museum where its mystery can now be revealed.

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.
