Wet weather might have shortened the procession, but it didn't wipe the smiles on gradation day.

The College of West Anglia students celebrated years of hard work at a presentation ceremony to mark the end of their higher education degrees.

Watched by their proud families, they gathered inside the Corn Exchange in King's Lynn to be presented with their certificates for completing courses from equine studies to engineering.

The procession usually takes the graduates around the town centre but due to damp conditions on Saturday they were limited to just a lap around the Tuesday Market Place.

They were led by principal David Pomfret who paid tribute to the 146 graduates.

Mr Pomfrets: 'It's a shame about the conditions, but whatever the weather it will be a day to remember for all the graduates.

'I know the students have worked extremely hard to get where they are today.
