Liberal Democrats in north Norfolk have a new agent and a new office as they gear up to the next set of elections.

Michael Kitching, 22, has taken on the role of agent and constituency organiser left vacant when predecessor Simon Wright stepped in to the election arena himself to stand against Charles Clarke in Norwich South.

One of his first tasks has been helping the local team move offices in North Walsham from the Market Place to Vicarage Street - where even MP Norman Lamb and his wife Mary have joined in the wall-painting efforts, ready for Monday's opening.

Now the focus is on the county and European elections on June 4, and planning for the general election due next year.
