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

•A video of a kidney found in a SFC meal was viewed over 75,000 times on Facebook. It was uploaded by Jack, 20, after he visited the SFC branch in the Castle Mall, Norwich, and safe to say his discovery put him off his meal.

•Workers at the Norwich branch of Bill's claimed they do not receive a penny from the service charge paid by customers. An employee told us: 'One of the girls asked about it and said, 'where does the service charge money go?' and the manager said, 'if you don't like it you can leave'.'•Chase & Status are to headline Norwich's Sundown Festival- again. It will be the band's fourth appearance at the Norfolk Showground and they join a host of tops acts including Jess Glynne and Years & Years.

•More than 70 doctors and health experts called for a ban on tackling in school rugby games due to the high-risk of injury. Rugby coaches from across Norfolk condemned the plans with many saying a ban 'would be a detriment to rugby.'

•The UEA blew £13m on two green energy schemes that never materialised. We discovered this week that £10.5m was spent building a biomass power plant on its Norwich campus, which never worked, and a further £2.25m on the now mothballed Generation Park plan.
