The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will be officially opening South Lynn Fire station next month.

On Monday February 2, the royal couple will be greeted by the Lord Lieutenant of Norfolk, Mr Richard Jewson, at the £2m station at Horsley's Fields.

They will then meet Nigel Williams, chief fire officer for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service, who will introduce them to some of the King's Lynn-based firefighters as well as a number of Fire Service Cadets.

Before departing, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will unveil a plaque to commemorate the official opening. Nigel Williams will then invite Her Majesty and His Royal Highness to sign a portrait for display in the station.
