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.'

He was inspired by Rosie Swale Pope's book called Just a Little Run Around the World.
