A memorial service will take place today marking the 100th anniversary of the first aerial bombardments of World War One, which took place over Norfolk on 19th January 1915.

Because of bad weather the German zeppelins were diverted to our coastline for the start of their bombing campaign.

Two airships dropped bombs on King's Lynn, Great Yarmouth and Sheringham, with the loss of four lives.

"Nobody really knew what it was, there probably were some people who did know what it was. But nobody ran away or thought they would be in any danger, they just stood there looking up at it."
