Former King’s Lynn radio journalist Emily Bull died this week after a short illness.

“The team at KL.FM are deeply saddened at the news of the sudden death of our friend and former colleague Emily Bull,” said the station’s managing director Darren Taylor yesterday.

Emily, 32, who lived in Peterborough, with her husband Stuart, joined KL.FM in 2013.

“She had a great skill at being able to inject her personality into news bulletins. Her understanding of West Norfolk and the people that live here allowed her to connect with listeners on a personal level,” said Mr Taylor.

In January of this year she was the runner-up as IRN Newsreader of the Year in a prestigious competition.
