Families who have lost loved ones to coronavirus came together for the unveiling of a touching new memorial. A memorial plum tree with accompanying plaque was presented for the first time at Loch Neaton in Watton.

Mid Norfolk MP George Freeman and the mayor of Watton, Jane Fountain, were among those to pay their respects on Monday morning. 

The idea for a lasting tribute stemmed from Thorp House care home in Griston, where four residents have died throughout the pandemic following battles with Covid.

With the backing of Kingsley Healthcare, local councils and the loch's committee, they were able to secure a fitting site for the planting of the 'tree of hope and perseverance'.
