A council's efforts to tackle fraud has seen it shortlisted for a national award.

Broadland District Council is a finalist in the Institute of Revenue, Rating and Valuation Performance Awards' 'Excellence in Counter Fraud' category.

It celebrates the work being carried out to tackle fraud.

In 2015, Broadland appointed one, part-time corporate fraud officer who works with internal departments and outside organisations to combat the issue.

During 2015-2016, the approach saved the council £35,000.
