Artists, children, community groups and shops have been busy decorating the lifebuoys, which will appear at a host of locations across Cromer, Sheringham and further afield.

The lifebuoys have been decorated in the same spirit as the windbreaks in 2012. The majority have a crab and lobster as part of the design and people can follow the trail, choose their favourite and enter a prize draw.

The trail leaflets are available in local tourist information centres, which also detail the festival's Scrumptious Seafood Trail, which launched at Easter.
