Among those who died was Philip Heathcote from Felixstowe in Suffolk and Stuart Cullen, who lived in Lowestoft. With tour operators taking holidaymakers there from all over the region, hundreds from the east flew back in the days that followed.

Nathan Priestley was one of those but he initially gave up his flight to allow others to come home first. The extra time he spent there gave him an insight into just how tough it was going to be for the Tunisian Hotel workers who rely on the tourism trade.

A Norwich pub has been named as the Norfolk 'pub of the year'.

The Beehive on Leopold Road in Norwich was voted the overall Norfolk pub of the year for 2015, by members of Norwich & Norfolk, West Norfolk and Mid Anglia branches of CAMRA - the campaign for real ale.

"Community pubs are invaluable, which is why I have worked so hard in growing The Beehive into the hub of the community, as well as offering an excellent range of local beers while supporting other micro breweries from further afield."

– Alex Kerridge, Landlady of the Beehive pub

"With a strong emphasis on the quality of the beers and the community focus of the pub, The Beehive emerged the winner after a well fought contest between the other two Norfolk pubs in the competition. A deserved winner."

Detectives investigating the deaths of two men at an industrial unit in Norwich have completed their on-site enquiries.

Officers have been working with colleagues from the Health and Safety Executive since the incident at Harford Attachments on Monday 13 July.

Daniel Timbers, 29, and Barry Joy, 56, both died as a result of the effects of fire and inhalation of fumes of combustion.

The men were killed while working in a confined unit and evidence gathered so far suggests a flash over explosion happened as a result of a build-up of toxic fumes with some sort of ignition causing a fire ball.
