A new Turning the Tide, tells the dramatic story of the huge flood surge which battered the coastline of Norfolk and Suffolk in 2013.
The book, with incredible photographs and poignant words from the flood team who reported events for the North Norfolk News and its sister paper the EDP, shows how brilliant work by the emergency services planners and local heroes meant there were no deaths. And a community fightback began...
It is available (hardback £15, soft cover £7.95) from today at the EDP's office at Prospect House, Rouen Road, Norwich and from tomorrow at our offices around Norfolk and north Suffolk.
Meanwhile, tonight the Eastern Daily Press is to honour hundreds of those involved in preventing the crisis becoming a catastrophe with a very special 'thank you' evening.
Up to 400 people, ranging from emergency service staff, council workers to volunteer flood wardens, power workers and members of the public, will attend an evening of thanks at Drayton Hall, just outside Norwich.

At the event, everyone there who played a part in the efforts will receive a special one-off medal to honour their work.
