Armed with colourful buckets, fishing line and a wide variety of meaty treats more than 50 children descended on Cromer Pier today to battle it out for the title of best crab catcher.
The crab-catching competition is part of Cromer Carnival's two children's weeks, which are taking place in the run up to the big week-long festival later this month.
After an hour of tempting the crabs with everything from pieces of plaice to bits of liver and bacon, three clear winners emerged.

Another crab competition will be held on the pier next Monday between 2.30pm and 4pm.
