A market town in Norfolk has been named among the best places to live in the UK.

Aylsham has been included on the Sunday Times' annual list for the East of England alongside Norwich.

It comes days after it was named the best town in Norfolk by Muddy Stilettos.

Aylsham was praised by the Sunday Times as "the perfect advert for small-town living" with the coast, the Broads and Norwich all in reach.

Towns were chosen after visits by the judges and factors such as schools, transport, broadband, culture, green spaces and high streets.
