A bet placed in honour of Britain's 'oldest and unluckiest racing punter' who died two weeks before his 105th birthday has proved a winner for his favourite charities.
George Attkinson from Swaffham was affectionately known as George the second because his horse never came first.
But a bet placed in his name at the Grand National romped home at 33 to one - the three thousand pound winnings were divided between the RNLI at Cromer and a cancer charity.
Archaeologists in Norfolk are concerned that some fossil hunters are damaging cliffs at West Runton near Cromer while looking for relics.
A fully intact mammoth was found there 25 years ago but experts say all you need to hunt for fossils is your eyes.
The vast majority of people who come to collect here are doing exactly what we want them to do. We don't want people to not look for fossils, that's the last thing we want them to do. What we want to discourage is the few individuals who are using hammers or even spades and are actually digging into these cliffs.

Unison is to ballot members at the East of England Ambulance Trust over industrial action.
Frontline ambulance staff will be asked whether or not they want to strike over concerns that managers' have failed to tackle what Unison calls, problems with excessive working hours and lack of sufficient breaks.
"After a year of broken promises, our crews are still faced with unacceptable working conditions. Frontline staff are caring people, committed to providing excellent patient care but they’re human beings too and they need to be cared for by their employer. Fifteen hour shifts with just a half hour unpaid break are now commonplace. Ambulance staff carry out life saving work in their communities and deserve better treatment."
