A small piece of political history was made in Norfolk this morning - with the first ever live streaming of a Norfolk County Council cabinet meeting.
Taking place on Monday morning, the first meeting of the new cabinet at County Hall was being streamed via Youtube.
The committee meeting began at 10am and was the first since the council reverted back to a cabinet system of governance.
It was the council's debut live stream, after the provision was agreed at a meeting of the council's digital innovations committee in January.The idea was original floated by Labour councillor Dave Rowntree last year in a motion to full council, but this was voted down.
However, it was brought back to the table in January and today's stream was the result.
The meeting, which lasted 34 minutes, was watched live by 15 people at its busiest point, though at one point just four people were tuned in.
