From atop of the tallest ride at last week's fun fair, the image offers a rare birds eye glimpse of the Market Place.

Great Yarmouth mayor, Cllr Malcolm Bird, launched the Great Yarmouth Easter Fair and said at the time: 'It gives me great pleasure to open this Easter fair. I would like to pass on my best wishes for a successful few days.'

The borough council is running the fair with the eastern counties branch of the Showmen's Guild.

A gold-embossed ceramic Charter Key was presented to the guild made by Ernie Childs, of Great Yarmouth Potteries, in 2008 to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the Royal Charter granted to Great Yarmouth by King John in 1208.
