A vacancy has opened up at the Cromer Town Council after councillor David 'Hubba' Roberts resigned from his position.

Mr Roberts said: 'I've had to step down because the meetings clash with other commitments I have, such as the Crab and Lobster Festival, and the Cromer Carnival.'

A notice of casual vacancy published by the town council said: 'If by September 19, 2017, a request for an election to fill said vacancy is made in writing to the Returning Officer ten electors for the said Parish, an election will be held to fill the said vacancy, otherwise the vacancy will be filled by co-option.'

Mr Robert's parish was the Parish of Cromer, specifically the Suffield Park region.

If an election is called, it will take place not later than November 21, 2017.
