Kim Morrison, who was born in north Norfolk, visited Kinsale Junior School in Hellesdon to mark the official opening of its new trim trail, which has been bought after years of fundraising.

While the school has always had a trail, about four years ago pupils, parents and the Friends of Kinsale Junior School decided it was past its best and began a fundraising campaign to replace it.

They have since raised thousands of pounds for the trail, which is all-weather and can be used throughout the year.

On Wednesday, pupils quizzed Mrs Morrison on her career as an athlete, before she signed autographs and unveiled the trail.
