Halsey House, home to many ex-servicemen and women and their families, staged Halsey's Got Talent at its home in Cromer last night (Friday) - its take on hit TV show Britain's Got Talent.

Seventeen-year-old kitchen assistant Josh Hinds, who is studying drama, performance and media at Paston College, stole the show with his performance of 'Bring Him Home' from musical Les Miserables.

However, with money raised on the night going towards residents' trips, organisers of the competition, which was judged by Barry Wortley and Mike English, pointed out everyone is a winner.

Steve Norman, Head of Activities at Halsey House, said: 'Everything we do is for the residents and their trips out.
