Black & Decker, Bike Danger and Bin Disaster

Three Norfolk related stories to catch up on.

The death in Jersey, at the age of 78, of inventor and designer Ron Hickman was announced this week. Famed for inventing the Workmate, which has sold 30 million units since its invention in 1961, he is also credited with designing the original 1960's Lotus Elan and Europa cars in Hethel near Wymondham.

A kidnapped bike was saved from a suicidal drop off the Midland Bank roof in the Georgian Market Place, Swaffham on a busy Saturday morning. The bike was safely brought down with no injury to the velocipede or any passer by beneath.

A thunderbolt in Holt may have not have caused a bin blaze in the picturesque North Norfolk Coast town, the fire was put out by the local crew before the Sherringham tender could arrive as back up.

Nothing rubbish about that kind of service, damping down the danger of the fire flash in the trash.
