A three year licence to carry out maintenance dredging at Wells Harbour in Norfolk has been granted. It follows months of delay as the Marine Management Organisation investigated the possible environmental impact.

The harbour master welcomed the news as beneficial to the local economy, saying it guarantees safe access to the harbour for wind farm traffic, fishing and other vessels.
