In case you missed them, here are five stories that caught our eye last week.
• 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.
