About 30 Christians gathered on Dereham's Neatherd Moor for the traditional Easter Sunday sunrise service.

Ian Gardner, an elder at the town's Baptist church, led the service, which celebrated Jesus' resurrection.

It included songs, Bible readings, some drama and prayers.

Despite the poor weather forecast, the early risers got a glimpse of the sunrise over the Neatherd pond.

Radio Norfolk's live sunrise service was held at Thetford's Iron Age Castle Mound.

Norwich Cathedral's Easter Sunday Worship was broadcast live on BBC Radio 4 this morning - the Rt Rev Graham James, Bishop of Norwich, preached at the service.
