A seaside town council has co-opted a new town councillor.

Osteopath Samuel Lidgley, of Cromer, is the owner of treatment centre High Silver Clinic in Holt and said he took on the role because he wanted to help in his community.

The 24-year-old added: 'I grew up in Norwich but since living in Cromer I have grown to love the town.

'I have a burgeoning interest in the issues facing people locally and it's exciting being a councillor as it is a privileged position to be in to help people in this community.'

Mr Lidgley graduated from the British School of Osteopathy, London, in June last year, turning his life-long passion for horses into a career repairing equine injuries, canine sprains and human muscle-and-bone problems.
