Liz Truss, MP for South and West Norfolk, and Brandon Lewis, MP for Great Yarmouth, were speaking at Peel Ports in Great Yarmouth on Friday.

Ms Truss had been visiting the port to talk about the future of the ports post-Brexit.

Mr Lewis said: “I have done a couple of Norfolk Day stuff locally. I was down at the town centre at St George’s with the mayor and out in the villages where there is some really good stuff.

“We are very lucky in this county, we’ve got things like the Broads, we’ve got Norwich which is a great city, all of the seaside attractions and wonderful beaches throughout the East and the North, it is a great county.”
