The knowledge and commitment of council workers was recognised at West Norfolk's annual long service awards presentation at King's Lynn Town Hall.

Forty-four members of staff, who have between them served 690 years with the council, received a certificate, including staff who have worked for the council for 10, 20 and 30 years.

Council leader Brian Long said: 'I've worked alongside borough council employees for many years, so I have first-hand knowledge of their dedication and expertise.

'Now I have the chance to personally thank staff for their years of service, and celebrate these landmarks in their working lives. I could never do what I do without the support of every last one of the borough council's outstanding employees, and I'm sure my fellow councillors all feel the same'.
