More news, no ads


Diss Town Council has introduced a number of additional measures aimed at reducing the spread of coronavirus.

The steps include closing the town’s cemetery, boardwalk and gardens until further notice.

The weekly market, however, will continue to operate in order to allow people to buy essential items.

Though the cemetery, in Heywood Road, will still be open for burials, members of the public will no longer be able to access the site, following government guidelines regarding valid reasons for people to leave their homes.

A council statement said: “Visiting a cemetery other than for a funeral is not one of them. We hope residents will be understanding of this measure.”

The authority said it was committed to keeping the market running, so long as customers adhere to the two-metre rule introduced to ensure social distancing.

Motorists have also been reminded to respect existing traffic regulation orders.

The statement read: “Mere Street should only be accessed by delivery vehicles and those using the Kings Head Yard car park for essential shopping only.

“Vehicles exiting the car park should turn left and not use Mere Street towards the A1066 to leave the town centre.”
