Ronnie Corbett is opening Cromer's new museum
A 1.8m museum dedicated to Britain's most decorated lifeboatman opens in Norfolk on Wednesday.

Comedian Ronnie Corbett is officially opening the Henry Blogg Museum in the lifeboatman's home town, Cromer. It opens to the public on Thursday.

Henry Blogg joined the Cromer crew in 1894 when he was 18 and served as coxswain for 38 years.

During his 53 years' service the Cromer boats and crews were out 387 times and saved 873 lives.

The resort's new attraction is the first purpose-built RNLI museum in 60 years.
