A teenager and his father will be celebrating Father's Day by giving back to those hit by tragedy this week.

Andy Bales and his son Sam Harvey-Bales will be travelling to London on 18 June, to deliver clothes and food to those who lost their homes in the Grenfell Tower fire.

Mr Bales, 50, the owner of Elite Taxis and Elite Garage Services in North Walsham, is appealing to the public to bring donations to their garage on Folgate Road.

Sam, 19, said: 'My dad just wants to give back to all the people that have lost something this father's day.'

The Mundesley resident continued: 'I think what's been happening recently has affected him, every time we wake up to the news something bad has happened and we just wanted to give back something that they've lost.'
