Welcoming in a wet old May Day in King’s Lynn

Bemused shoppers stood and stared today as cow horns echoed down the High Street in the drizzle.
It might not have seemed like it, as King’s Lynn sulked under leaden skies, but it was the official start of summer.
That meant an early start for the King’s Morris, who scaled the dizzy heights of Knight’s Hill to dance up the dawn.
Most years, the caper produces a sunrise of sorts. But not this May Day - which comes in the wake of the wettest April on record.
Things hadn’t improved by the time the morris rocked up in Lynn this afternoon, to parade the traditional garland through the streets - reaching for their umbrella.
