Norfolk Police have confirmed a member of staff has been injured in the attacks in Tunisia yesterday.

Tony Callaghan, who works at North Walsham PEO as a property officer, was with his wife on holiday when they were both injured in the incident.

Their injuries have required hospital treatment but are not life-threatening.

A statement from Norfolk Police said: “We are liaising with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to ensure regular updates regarding the couple and to provide assistance to their family back home in Norfolk.

“We are also able to confirm that a Norfolk police officer was also, independently from the Callaghans, on holiday in the resort at the time of the incident. He is however safe and well.”

Islamic State are claiming responsibility for the attack, which took place on a beach resort. So far, 38 have been confirmed dead.
