Children in a Norfolk village could soon be enjoying hours of fun on a new playpark attraction as plans to install a zipline edge closer.

Hopton Parish Council hopes to install a zipline by February next year at the village's recreation ground in Lowestoft Road.

The proposals, which have been in the pipeline for more than four years, were discussed at a parish council meeting at Hopton Village Hall earlier this month.

Chairman of the council, Ian Constable, believes the zipline will be a great addition to the playpark which currently boasts a skate park and other play equipment.

He said: "It's been a popular idea for a number of years but it does seem to be getting closer.

Further details on the cost of the zipline are set to be presented to the authority at its next meeting in December.
