Cyclist could soon be allowed to use a section of footpath close to a Norfolk town's rail station.

Norfolk County Council has proposed to convert part of a pathway in Station Road, Wymondham, into a shared use facility.

The change would allow cyclists to use it, along with pedestrians.

The plan would also see the existing zebra crossing on the road converted into a puffin crossing, meaning traffic lights would be installed.
