Thousands of spectators cheered on a popular convoy of more than 100 trucks as it gave a group of children a memorable day out.
The 34th annual East Coast Truckers convoy made its way from County Hall in Norwich to Pleasurewood Hills in Lowestoft on Sunday, with disabled and disadvantaged children sharing a cab with drivers.
Crowds of well wishers lined the route, gathering on bridges over the A47 and along the seafront in Great Yarmouth, to cheer on the trucks and their special cargo.
They were also joined by members of the emergency services for the procession, with police motorcycle escorts and first aid on hand.
On Twitter, East Coast Truckers thanked the team at Pleasurewood Hills, saying it had been a "fantastic day".
