An Easter egg run saw dozens of motorbikes and scooters take to the road to bring a smile to children's faces.

Organised by the Leather and Parka's group, riders from groups across Norfolk united on Easter Sunday, April 17.

The group met in King's Lynn to visit a respite centre for children with behavioural problems, before riding on to Fakenham.

The convoy then stopped at the Cherry Tree car park in Dereham before ending their egg run with a visit to another children's centre in Wells-next-the-Sea.

Alan Howard, part of the convoy, said: "It has been a great turn out, and we must have had about 100 bikes and scooters taking part, from Wisbech, Downham Market, Fakenham, Norwich and across Norfolk.

"There were about 300 eggs altogether at the start, and people have brought more too along the way.
