The district's first ever youth council will be voted in on Friday but before the big day dawns a range of activities have been laid on by the district council in a bid to enthuse Breckland's youth and encourage them to vote.

It is being accompanied by the Kiss FM Street Team, who are providing music and fun, and the Light Dragoons from Swanton Morley, who will be displaying some of their armoured vehicles.
