A village in Norfolk is set to become the first in the county to get high-speed broadband and the first in a nationwide government project to upgrade its internet links.

Croxton near Thetford is being connected to the high-speed fibre network and the village is marking the occasion with a special celebration.

In addition, 30 locations around Norfolk are set to get faster broadband at least three months earlier than previously anticipated as part of the Better Broadband for Norfolk programme, which is a partnership between Norfolk County Council and BT.
