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.'
