A carer from Cromer has been named runner-up at a county-wide awards night.

Mark Potter, 54, was the second finalist at the awards for Norfolk's Extra Hands care company.

Mr Potter works from Extra Hands' Norwich office and has only been with the company for a year.

Organisers said his cheerful nature and willingness to 'go the extra mile' saw him take the runner's up spot for the Gill Chase award in this year's presentation, behind the overall winner, 25-year-old carrer Lorren Payne.

Mr Potter said he was delighted to have made the final and he gave his presentation bouquet to his wife Kaye who also attended the awards ceremony in Norwich.

The Gill Chase awards were started four years ago in memory of a long-standing committed carer who died suddenly in 2014 aged 68.
