Two furry life-savers and a feline superhero took time out from heroics to visit children in hospital this Easter Sunday.

Paw Patrol characters Chase and Skye, and Catboy from PJ Masks spent the day on the children's ward at the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston, bringing smiles to the faces of the young patients they visited.

The characters surprised the children on the ward, in a repeat of another visit on Christmas Eve.

The visit was organised by fish and chip stall owner Connie Hodges, who normally uses the costumes for parties and events.

She said: 'A while ago, my son Harrison had to go into hospital to have grommets put in his ear and seeing children in hospital really got to me. I already had the costumes, so decided to make a regular thing of visiting children and raising a little cheer.

'I was really pleased with how it went, the children really loved them.'
