Two north Norfolk towns have welcomed new civic leadership following the appointment of new mayors.

Former electrical shop owner Richard Leeds has been appointed mayor of Cromer.

Mr Leeds, operations manager at the town's lifeboat station, previously ran Randall's of Cromer, which had been open on the high street since 1881, until its closure last year, and was deputy mayor of the town this year.

He will serve as mayor alongside fellow town councillor, Mike Bossingham, who will take over the role as deputy.

And in North Walsham, the town council has welcomed its new councillors, including the new town mayor, Garry Bull, who will sit on the planning and personnel and governance committees.
