It will feel like summer has come early across parts of Norfolk today as temperatures soar to 21C.

Norwich-based forecaster Weatherquest said the north Norfolk coast is to benefit from the warmest of weather.

But forecaster Phil Garner said other parts of the county could also expect to see temperatures of around 20C.

He added: 'These temperatures are not unusual [for this time of year], however it is well above the average of 12C.

'The warmest spots will be along the north Norfolk coast in towns like Cromer and Sheringham.
