PHOTO GALLERY: Sheringham Carnival Sammy the Sea Serpent contest winners
A stunning selection of slithering serpents of all shapes and sizes created a scary scene at a Sheringham church during the town's carnival day on Wednesday.
Locals used wool, pottery, paper, card and painted bottles to create their entries for the carnival Sammy the Sea Serpent competition.
The serpents, which have become the carnival's mascot, were initially put on display on Station Road, but a touch of rain saw them moved to St Peter's Church.
