A service in memory of Norfolk fishing legend John Wilson is to take place at Norwich Cathedral later this year.

The memorial service will be held at the Cathedral on May 24 at 2pm.

Mr Wilson, who was made an MBE for services to angling in 2009, died at his home in Thailand on 13 November last year aged 75.

Originally from Enfield, Mr Wilson used to live at Great Witchingham, near Norwich, before he moved to Thailand in 2013.

He presented Anglia Television's Go Fishing from 1986 to 2002 after being spotted by TV bosses in a Norwich tackle shop.

He was named the greatest angler by the Angling Times in 2004 and he wrote about 20 books on fishing.
