Good morning from The Seeker!

One of my goals in life (and as editor) is to try and help the next generation of journalists.

Our story today started when I took a group of UEA students I teach to a Norfolk County Council meeting last year.

There in passing was a brief reference to how police were using a spray called Naloxone to try and save the lives of drug users who had overdosed.

It seemed like a good story - and one student journalist, Aimee Dexter, decided to find out more.

This is what she found.

Thank you for supporting The Seeker!
