People still have a chance to have their say on how energy giant Vattenfall will spend a million-pound community fund for Norfolk.

About 1,500 people have so far had their say in the firm's survey into its Norfolk Projects Community Fund.

Father-of-one Jaydn Johnson, from Great Yarmouth, who runs his own company alongside studying at East Coast College, called on young people to take part.

He said: “It only takes a few minutes. It’s about our future. Making sure our future is green is really important to me and my family. With a young son, my fiancee and I want to make sure there are plenty of opportunities for us."  

Hollie Mountain, studying for A levels in chemistry, physics and maths at University Technical College Norfolk, added: “By getting involved and embracing green energy we aren’t only protecting our future, we are also helping design a greener and healthier planet for everyone.
