Nominations for the Downham Market Local Heroes Awards are no longer being accepted, as the coronavirus crisis continues.

The awards, which are being organised by Downham Market Town Council, had been earmarked to take place at the town hall on May 31, but they have been postponed until further notice.

The council had been continuing to accept nominations for the 11 award categories after it announced the awards would be postponed earlier in March, but officials have now said that while existing nominations will still be valid, no more are being accepted at this time.

Meanwhile, there would also be an overall "Winner of Winners".

A town council spokesperson said: "We will reopen for nominations and new categories will be announced as soon as possible.
