Stunning photographs have been taken of the Northern Lights display along the north Norfolk coast this week.

The natural spectacle, caused by radiation from the sun interacting with the earth's atmosphere, happened late on Tuesday night and early yesterday morning.

Keen Norfolk photographers Gary Pearson, from Dersingham, James Rowley-Hill, from Happisburgh, and Duncan Arnold managed to capture the impressive green and red light display from different points of the coast.

Mr Pearson was at Burnham Overy Staithe harbour, Mr Rowley-Hill was at Cley Windmill and Mr Arnold was Morston Quay.
