For the first time this year a Beccles carnival prince was selected to represent the town alongside the Miss Beccles carnival queen and her two princess attendants.

The contest, held at Beccles Public Hall, saw almost 30 entrants vying to become carnival royalty, answering a series of questions for the judges.

This year's Miss Beccles is 17-year-old Stephanie Tsang, a student at Sir John Leman sixth form in Beccles.

She said: 'I thought it would be a really nice opportunity to represent Beccles and be part of the carnival.'
