Two men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of lead theft from a church in Norfolk.
Officers were called to St John the Baptist Church on Church Street in Coltishall around 9.30pm yesterday evening (Wednesday 26 April 2016), following reports of suspicious activity.
A 20-year-old man was found on the roof of the church. He was arrested on suspicion of theft and being in possession of a bladed article.
A man aged in his 30s and a woman in her 20s were also arrested in connection with the theft.
The funeral is taking place today for a 16-year-old who died alongside his friends in a crash in Norfolk.
Billy Hines was a passenger in the vehicle that crashed into trees off Tivetshall Road near Pulham Market earlier this month.
Almost 200 jobs could go at a call centre in Norwich.
It comes as the Swinton Group announced plans to reshape its business model - putting more than 900 jobs at risk across the country.
The firm is investing £45m in enhanced IT and digital technology at its new head office and contact centre in Manchester.
The move means 84 branches are under review nationally as well as the call centre in Rosary Road, Norwich, which employs 183 people.
Swinton will now begin a formal consultation with all employees impacted by the proposals.
Where possible, affected staff will be deployed into other parts of the business.
Ever since Swinton started selling insurance door-to-door 60 years ago, this business has always evolved - first via branches, then contact centres and increasingly online. Our approach today, which is based on a high contact strategy, no longer meets our customers’ needs.
While branches continue to be an important part of our multi-channel business model, we need to ensure that we can interact with customers whenever, and however, they choose.
It therefore makes sense to continually review how we operate to ensure Swinton remains fit for the future.
