Detectives in Great Yarmouth, investigating a murder 29-years-ago say they want to talk to a woman who rang them at the time.
The world's biggest offshore wind farm has opened off the Essex coast and there's been another boost for the region's energy industry.
A former soldier who is walking the entire coastline of Britain for charity has arrived in Suffolk.
Detectives in Great Yarmouth, investigating a murder 29 years ago say they want to talk to a woman who called them at the time.
They believe she may hold a vital clue to the circumstances surrounding the death of 24 year old Peter Miller who was stabbed in his home on Camden Place in 1984.
The woman rang asking to speak to a female officer on Sunday 30th December that year but wouldn't leave her name.
There's been widespread disruption with the east coast hit by, what's thought to be, the worst storm surge since 1953.
Thousands have evacuated their homes and businesses; power is down in many parts of the region and transport networks have also suffered.

Police in Yarmouth are urging ‘sightseers’ – who are placing their safety at significant risk – to avoid the seafront and North Quay areas of the town.
Police are highlighting three main areas of concern:
- People still trying to drive and walk across the flooded area of North Quay, which is now closed.
- Pedestrians, in particular, are at risk from walking through the flood water, which can conceal open manholes and dangerous obstructions, with the water frequently containing sewerage.
- In the Gorleston area, from Riverside Road to the Ocean Rooms, and on to the beach and amusements, large crowds – are gathering very close to the seafront. There are serious concerns for their safety and police officers will be visiting this area to urge these groups away from danger.
- Haven Bridge is also now closed and people are standing on the bridge trying to get a better view of the flooding.
– Chief Inspector Kate Thacker, Norfolk Police
"Some of these people have no concept of the danger they are putting themselves in and we are urging pedestrians to keep away from the flood water and sea front and for traffic to avoid the town centre.
"Acle New Road, between Breydon Bridge and North Quay has also recently been closed to traffic as a result of flood water."

Several residents from Great Yarmouth have taken shelter at Cliff Park High School in Gorleston. Rob Shelton, who is the Headteacher at the school, started welcoming people to the centre at around 4:30pm.
He said: “We had a group of 35 people from a care home in Great Yarmouth and since then a slow trickle of people that have been coming in and there is very much a community feeling...it's going well at the moment."
