Police have released images of the couple killed on the A47.

The images show the pair in the Worzals Farm Shop in Walpole Highway at around 1:20pm on Sunday.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Durham, who is leading the enquiry, explained:

We now believe that prior to her arriving at Worzals, Nonita was wearing black trousers with a black and white patterned round-neck cardigan.

She was also wearing yellow-framed designer sunglasses and was barefoot.

It is thought that when she got to the layby on the A47, probably due to the weather, she has taken off her cardigan and rolled up her trousers, which gave them the appearance of leggings. A key focus on this enquiry is anyone who may have seen the couple as they made their way along the A47 so, with this new information in mind, I’d been keen to hear from anyone who may have seen Nonita to come forward.”

– Det Ch Insp Paul Durham

Yesterday, one lane of the eastbound carriageway was closed while officers carried out a detailed search of the grass verge, recovering items of clothing, documents and a pair of sunglasses, believed to belong to the couple.

Anyone with information should contact the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team (MIT) on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Council wants county-wide action over GP shortages

A council is calling for county-wide action over GP shortages.

Breckland Council says a 10% shortfall in the number of GPs across Norfolk together with a problem in recruiting GPs led to the Watton GP surgery de-registering 1,500 patients.

The council has just published the findings of an investigation into the issues behind the patients being removed from the surgery register.

In a statement Cllr Phil Cowen, for the council, said:

We are seriously concerned that people in rural areas are experiencing increasing difficulties accessing local GP services, with Watton just the latest and most serious example.

Cross-Norfolk action is required to address this systemic issue and we want to encourage NHS England to take the lead in this.

The shortage of GPs will nlot be resolved without clear action."
