Hundreds of young people have been enjoying the sunshine as they celebrate the second anniversary of Cromer skate park- just months after it was threatened with closure.

BMX, scooter and skateboard competitions are being held at a packed family fun-day and picnic at Meadow Park on Saturday, June 17.

The new committee organised the event after stepping in to save the facility following an appeal for more volunteers.

On one of the hottest days of the year so far, there are also exhibition riders, stalls, live music and a barbecue.

Emma Spagnola, secretary of the Cromer skate park committee team, said: 'There's been a brilliant turnout and a real celebration with hundreds of young people enjoying themselves.'

'It's important for teenagers to have their space,' he added.
