The boss of a private dining firm in Norfolk has pulled the plug on offering catering in homes because of the risk of catching Covid.

Emma-Louise Boubaker, the owner of Bayfield Catering in Blakeney, posted her decision on Instagram, saying: "Dinner party cooking on premises will no longer be going ahead, drop off dining only.

"I have taken the decision because there is way too much Covid around the area, I will not put myself and the business in a situation where it will affect more substantial work."

Ms Boubaker said she had contacted all her clients.
