A runner has arrived in Great Yarmouth as part of his 5,000-mile run around the British coastline.
Simon Clark, 57, started in his home in Kinloss near Inverness, Scotland a year and a half ago and is hoping to raise £20,000 for Ecologia Youth Trust's work for disadvantaged youngsters around the world.
He has made his way anti-clockwise around the country and now has just under 1,000 miles to go.
Mr Clark said: 'Every day people are kind to me, and give me food.
'I've come up the industrial bit of Yarmouth. I love seeing industry and shipping and metal.'

With no support team and only a bivvy bag to sleep in, he runs from 15 to 30 miles per day. He works as an architect from his laptop along the way.
He was inspired by Rosie Swale Pope's book called Just a Little Run Around the World.
