The new chief constable of Norfolk presented certificates congratulating the county's scouts on their achievements at the weekend - at Great Yarmouth's famous Hippodrome Circus.

Phil Gormley handed certificates to 74 beaver scouts, 62 cub scouts and 14 scouts from across Norfolk who have achieved the top chief scout's award for their section.

He also presented Duke of Edinburgh bronze and silver awards and chief scout's diamond and platinum awards to explorer scouts.

Jack Marshall-Grint, a 19-year-old scout network member from Kings Lynn, was presented with the top award in scouting, The Queen's Scout Award.

The award ceremony in the ring at the Hippodrome was watched by over 600 family members, friends and leaders who have worked with the young people to encourage and support them to achieve their awards.

Lee Anderton, assistant county commissioner for explorer scouts, said: “These events are held twice a year and are a highlight in the scouting calendar. They recognise the achievement of these young people who have worked hard for these awards.”
