A retired carer said she has been left 'devastated' after losing a gold locket she has worn every day for 40 years.

Ann Eccleston lost the heart-shaped gold locket in Cromer on Friday, January 11.

Mrs Eccleston, 75, said: 'I had worn it almost every day for over 40 years - it is very sentimental to me as it has a lock of my dog's hair in it and pictures of my husband, daughter and grandson.'

She added: 'I wear it to remember my old neighbour who was like a mum to me and died in my arms.

'You can imagine how devastated I am.'

Mrs Eccleston, from Weybourne, had to take the locket off for an appointment at Cromer hospital.

She said: 'My husband gave it back to me when we were in the car and I must have not put it on properly.
