Highs of 22C on Sunday - not far behind Cambridge which hit 25C - made running the Norwich Half Marathon something of a struggle for the 2,000 or so taking part but for everyone else, including spectators, the glorious sunshine was warmly welcomed.

Scores of sunseekers headed to the coast with Great Yarmouth just one of the county's seaside resorts which was bursting with visitors.

Further inland High Lodge at Thetford had to close its doors at around noon because it was full to capacity with people taking advantage of the picnic site and forest walks. The gates reopened just before 4pm.

Parks across the county were full of T-shirt and shorts-clad visitors hoping to take advantage of the weather which is to turn a little cooler from Monday with temperatures dropping to about 11C.
