Brandon Lewis has given his stamp of approval to the borough's tourism industry, as he cut probably the tiniest ribbon he ever will.

There was no need for over-sized novelty scissors at this ribbon cutting, as the Great Yarmouth MP officially launched Merrivale Model Village's new rocket exhibit.

He said: 'I think the tourism industry in the constituency is in great shape. I can't think of anywhere else that has quite so much to offer in the way of things to do, be it tourist attractions or heritage sites.

'There has always been a big buzz about the place, and I think given factors like Brexit, people are looking at the pound much more and going on more staycations, so it is great that we have such much to offer these people.'

Mr Lewis added that he thought the new rocket was 'brilliant'.
