North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb has thanked the 200 residents who turned out to speak to him during his annual village tour.
This was his 16th tour of North Norfolk's villages, which he has done every summer since being elected to Parliament in 2001.
The five-day tour saw him braving the elements while meeting residents to discuss a wide range of issues from health and care to highways, flooding, schools, mobile and broadband coverage, Brexit, and Vattenfall offshore wind.
Mr Lamb said: 'I always look forward to the summer tour, which is a fantastic opportunity to speak to people in their own villages and listen to their concerns. This was one of the biggest yet, with around 200 people coming along for a chat.
'I have taken up over 130 issues for residents as a result of the tour, which I look forward to pursuing over the coming weeks and months.'
