Youngsters had the chance to meet veterans, explore the trenches and even storm the beaches on D-Day to mark Armed Forces Day in Lynn at the weekend. A special event held at the Bridge for Heroes Military Experience Centre was hailed a success by outreach officer Laura Katlow.

She said: “It seemed quite popular, lots of people really enjoyed the day.”

During the school holidays, from July 27, the centre will be running a kids bootcamp on Tuesdays for youngsters aged from eight to 14. Call 01553 760230 to book.
