Did you see the mysterious object in the sky above our Norfolk Coast?
A fireball-like object has confounded stargazers along the Norfolk coast after it was spotted in the sky above several villages and towns. The object was seen on Sunday night at Hemsby, Gorleston, Caister, Cromer and came as a meteor group said sightings had also been recorded across England at roughly the same time.
The sightings described it to be a fireball type object in the sky
Someone also has said to have seen the same object in Gorleston and said it had a darkened centre with a huge ball of yellowy fire leaving a trail.
The American Meteor Society said it received nine reports about a fireball seen over England on Sunday at about 10.28pm, but none of the reports came from Norfolk.
If you spotted this mysterious object get in contact with us here at harbour radio and tell us your thoughts.
Two Theives who stole a moped have been taught a lesson through boxing.
Leon Docwra’s daughter had her moped stolen on Saturday and he shared a picture of it on Facebook in the hope of tracking it down.
The post was shared widely and Mr Docwra was able to trace the thieves. He subsequently posted his number online and asked for those responsible to contact him.
One of the parents called Mr Docwra, who said that he would not go to the police if they returned the moped and met him for a boxing session. The twin teenagers were remorseful for what they had done and trained hard.
They have since joined a boxing club and its hopeful their future will be bright instead of going down the road which would of resulted in the wrists in handcuffs.
Head of Norfolk’s oldest family-run coach business bids a tearful farewell
Charles Reynolds is selling his family business. Reynolds Coaches which has been going for over 100 years. Unfortunately ill health has now forced Charles to auction off the business.
Mr Reynolds took the decision to sell up after he was diagnosed with cancer last year.
Chemotherapy seemed to work and he was given the all-clear. But the aggressive cancer has come back and he has started a new course of treatment.
He said the last three months had been the best for six years, adding: “We are going out on a high and that is something to be proud of.”
• For children who usually catch a Reynolds Coaches bus to school “it’s business as usual in September” according to Norfolk County Council.
A spokesman said: “Even though parents may notice a different bus and driver, the pick-up points and timetables will be the same, and passes will still be valid.
“The contracts have gone to a range of operators.”
Heatwave puts pressure on region’s hospitals.
Make sure you cover up and drink plenty of water, Dehydration and severe sunburn are just two complaints clinicians at Norfolk’s hospitals have been confronted with during the recent heatwave.
The hot weather has put pressure on the region’s hospitals, with Anna Davidson, chairman of the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston, saying there were “similar levels of demand […] to the most difficult winter weeks.”
Graham Wilde, the hospital’s chief operating officer, has also said “The number of people visiting our accident and emergency department has dramatically increased in recent weeks and we have seen bed occupancy at peak winter levels. We have seen cases including severe sunburn and many cases of dehydration, which is why we have been encouraging people to follow advice issued nationally to keep hydrated and to keep cool.”
NHS advice for dealing with extreme temperatures include staying inside between 11am and 3pm, especially for those who are elderly or vulnerable. The health service also advises to cover up or stay in the shade, and to stay hydrated.
