After a long, hot summer panting pooches across the county will be able to get the sand between their paws once more.

Many beaches in Norfolk have a dog ban in the summer months, usually restricting the whole beach or sections of it between May 1 and September 30.

The bans, which do not apply to service dogs, can see owners prosecuted or fined if they are not followed.

North Norfolk District Council said: "As much as we love dogs here in north Norfolk, there are areas during certain times of the year where they are not welcome, or where they must be walked on a lead. These apply between 1 May and 30 September."
