Picture gallery: Norwich, Lowestoft and Ipswich crews go head-to-head in Oulton Broad Dragon Boat Festival

Crowds flocked to Oulton Broad today as the East Anglian Dragon Boat Festival returned to Nicholas Everitt Park.

Twenty teams including competitors from Lowestoft, Norwich and Ipswich all went head-to-head in the dragon boats, as families lined the side of the water to enjoy the racing on a bright sunny day.

Team Expro, representing Expro North Sea, were there defending the title they won last year, while IDM Electrical, of Lowestoft, got into the spirit of the event by dressing up in Where's Wally? inspired attire.

In the end the winners were Team Elite from Elite Interiors UK Ltd, of Lowestoft, with a time of 59.18, beating Team Expro by less than a second.

The event has been raising money for St Elizabeth Hospice, which helps people living with a progressive illness and their families in Waveney and Great Yarmouth.
