Hospital workers in Lynn have paused to thank their NHS colleagues and other key workers this evening - in the week that they lost one of their own.

The death of Chrissie Emerson, a healthcare assistant who worked at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital was announced on Monday.

And there was added poignancy as hospital staff were joined by police and fire service personnel for tonight's applause.

The fifth week of the Clap for Carers coincided with the BBC's Big Night In fundraising collaboration between Children in Need and Comic Relief.

It featured the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge clapping with their children – George, Charlotte and Louis – at Anmer Hall.

Meanwhile, the King's Lynn Town Ladies football team were among those to take to social media to say thank you.

Earlier, some of West Norfolk's bin workers staged their own applause at the end of their shift.

The tribute followed news earlier in the day that the number of coronavirus patients who have been discharged from the QEH has risen to 109.

But hospital bosses pleaded for the public not to become complacent about their role in preventing the infection spreading.

Six more deaths have also been confirmed, taking that total to 70.
