When he was born at 26 weeks weighing just over a pound the outlook for Ethan Bird didn't look good.

In his hospital cot he was dwarfed by his cuddly toy rabbit.

But Ethan, from Filby near Great Yarmouth, has proved everyone wrong overcoming plenty of problems and setbacks.

He was born in December 2012 when he was delivered 14 weeks early after his mother developed pre-eclampsia.

Ethan spent just about all of his first 18 months in various hospitals around the region, the Norfolk and Norfolk, the James Paget at Gorleston and Addenbrooke's in Cambridge.

Now to the delight of his mum and dad their 'little' battler has started school.

Hopes fade for missing scuba diver

The scuba diver failed to return to the Raider V after exploring an underwater wreck.

The search for a scuba diver reported missing 15 miles off the coast of Great Yarmouth has been suspended.

A 67-year-old man from the Brighton area was part of group diving at a wreck site on Bank Holiday Monday when he failed to return to the boat.

Three lifeboats and two helicopters were involved in the search along with local shipping but there was no sign of him and any hopes of finding him alive have faded.

The investigation will focus on what went so tragically wrong in perfect diving conditions. It was a calm clear sea, visibility was really good, so if he had made it to the surface it is thought he would have been spotted.

It suggests that the diver may well have become snagged underwater on the wreck.
