People will flock to Cromer on New Year's Day for the traditional fireworks display on the pier.

It is the 16th year of the fireworks, which started as a one-off millennium event but have turned into one of the major dates in the Norfolk events calendar - ushering in the New Year with a bang, and explosion of colour.

And once again there is a chance for photographers to win a top prize with their images of the spectacular 5pm display.

Display operator Clive Casburn said there would be about 400 fireworks producing 2,000 bursts of stars and special effects along the whole length of the pier - along with seven pyro water effects.

'With the wind off shore and the high tide at the display time, conditions could well be ideal,' he added.
