• Signs with sarcastic slogans, which sprang up close to where speed limits have been introduced while work takes place on the Norwich Northern Distributor Road, are being removed. The signs appeared in parts of Horsford and criticise the need for 30mph limits to be in place when little work for the £178.5m road was happening. One read 'Caution: Work NOT in progress'.

• The Fry-Up Inspector revealed his five favourite places in Norwich for a great breakfast.

• A host of people from Norfolk have had their 15 minutes of fame (and sometimes more) after appearing on TV shows ranging from Popstars to MasterChef. We take a look back at where some of those personalities are now.

• Could this be the dream job for you? Blickling Hall is on the hunt for a new countryside manager to help run the 5,000 acre estate near Aylsham.

• Finally, it's good news for diners in Norwich. Caribbean cuisine could be on its way to the Norwich Lanes as Turtle Bay has applied for a licence at the site of The Fabric Warehouse on Swan Lane. The chain promises to deliver 'jerk, rum and reggae' in a social Caribbean style, including cutters inspired by the beach shacks and street hawkers of the islands.
