The head of North Norfolk District Council’s legal team Eastlaw said she was “proud” and “thrilled” after winning a national award.

Emma Duncan was named governance lawyer of the year at the Lawyers in Local Government Awards, which were held at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel, London, on November 9.

Eastlaw was also shortlisted in a legal team of the year category alongside six other local authorities.

Ms Duncan said: “I was proud and thrilled to win the award, but I was just as proud that the whole team was also a finalist. Success in these kind of awards can be achieved only with the backing of such a great team.”
