Security at Attleborough cemetery will be boosted following an attempted break-in last month.

Councillors voted to buy a new alarm system for the cemetery at a town council meeting yesterday evening, following the incident on May 17.

Also at the meeting, new mayor Jeremy Burton proposed recording all future full town council meetings so a more accurate record of them would be available. Mr Burton, who took over as mayor from Tony Perkins last month, said he also wanted to make the full meetings shorter, and have committees deal with more issues.

On another issue, Mr Burton said the council's environment committee would re-consider whether to make the town's public playgrounds smoke free, after the idea, which is being considered in Norwich, was rejected at a previous meeting.
