Campaigners are set to reveal how their bid to reopen the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton is progressing.

They will be giving a presentation to West Norfolk councillors on Tuesday, March 12.

No details of the 30-minute presentation have been made public.

So far more than 4,000 people have signed a petition since the campaign was launched in 2017.

Campaigners claim the line could cut traffic and congestion on the A149 during the summer tourist season.
