Staff and visitors at the Dad's Army Museum at Thetford in Norfolk have been paying tribute to one of the show's best known stars, who died at the weekend. Bill Pertwee played Captain Mainwaring's nemesis Hodges, in the 70s sitcom which was filmed in the town. Jim Rice reports.
TRIBUTES have been paid to two murdered men whose bodies were discovered in Thorney last week.
John Chapman, 56, of Bifield, Orton Goldhay, Peterborough, and Lukasz Slaboszewski, 31, from Peterborough, were discovered at Thorney Dyke on Wednesday.
They died from stab wounds. Their deaths are being linked to the murder of 48-year-old Kevin Lee whose body was discovered in nearby Newborough on March 30.
The family of Mr Chapman have released the following statement:
"We are all so upset and shocked by the tragic loss of John.
"He was a loving brother, brother in law and uncle. He was much loved by all who knew him and will be missed by all his friends and family.
Mr Slaboszewski's sister, Magda Skrzypczak said: "Lukasz was the joker in the family, always finding something to laugh about.
"His mum and dad are devastated by their loss and he also leaves two grieving sisters."
Five people have been arrested in connection with the murder of Mr Lee.
A 36-year-old man has been charged with perverting the course of justice and will appear at Peterborough Crown Court on Wednesday (April 10).
Two men, aged 23 and 32, are currently on bail.
A 47-year-old man arrested in Hereford last week was questioned about the murders over the weekend.
A 30-year-old woman also arrested in Hereford has been detained under the Mental Health Act.
Tributes were paid to PC Ian Dibell at a special memorial service in Clacton today.
He was shot dead last month as he tried to defend a neighbour from a man armed with a gun. Hundreds attended the service, including some of the country's most senior police officers. Martin Stew reports.
