And the Cherry Tree pot-hole work begins!

Today the pot-holes at Cherry Tree car park are finally being repaired.
Workmen are on the site this morning sorting the problem which has been rumbling on for months.
Breckland Council said last week that the main entrance to the town’s biggest car park will be closed for most of today as the owners of the land have called in a contractor to fix the 16 deep holes.
The repairs come after The Times demanded that something be done to stop cars being damaged as they enter and leave the car park.
This morning drivers told The Times they were pleased the holes were being filled - but said it was about time.
Caroline Young, who works in the travel centre in Dereham, regularly parks at the Cherry Tree and described the pot-holes as “disgraceful”.
She said: “The council really should have sorted it before now.”
Michelle Chapman said it was “about time” that the holes were filled as she said it’s difficult getting in and out of the car park.
And Philip Webster, who lives in Longham, said it was “brilliant” that work is being done and that he would have no more “rough drives”.
The other entrance to the car park, off Theatre Street adjacent to Theatre Street Surgery, remains open.
