Politicans will debate climate change and its effect on the fragile Norfolk coastline at a free meeting.

The panel will consist of North Norfolk MP Sir Norman Lamb, Duncan Baker, Conservative prospective parliamentary candidate (PPC), Martin Langsdon, vice-chairman of North Norfolk Labour Party, and Mark Taylor, Green Party PPC.

There will be a presentation from Dr Hayley Pinto, chairman of Chain (Climate Hope Action In Norfolk), which is organising the event, plus questions from the audience.

Stephen Little, secretary of Chain, said: "We held a similar and successful event with Norwich South MP Clive Lewis in February at the Forum and are looking to repeat the trick with Sir Norman.

"North Norfolk, with its low-lying and fragile coastline, is uniquely vulnerable to climate change and there seems to be a rising level of interest in the issue."
