A Roger Moore fan who first met the film star 50 years ago has been treated to a second meeting.

May Trimmer, from Thetford, was just 26 when she snuck into Battersea Fun Fair in 1966 with her four-year-old son to meet the James Bond actor.

When Mrs Trimmer, a former Miss World competitor, found out Sir Roger would be coming to Norwich Theatre Royal she hoped to get the chance to see him again.

And her wish came true after a friend bought her a ticket to the 89-year-old's show, An Afternoon with Sir Roger Moore, on Sunday and organised transport for her.

She said: 'The theatre was absolutely packed.
