A stunning video captured by a drone pilot has revealed a sea of multi-coloured tulips in full display.

Tulip fields off the A148 at Hillington are being opened to visitors from Wednesday, April 28 and tickets to tour the colourful spring attraction sold out within days of them going on sale.

More than 4,000 people have booked a 45-minute tour and proceeds will go to Norfolk Hospice Tapping House.

Photographs and video taken by drone pilot Paul Ovenden of Norfolk Drones has revealed the extent of the tulips coverage, with striking rows of colour taking hold of the fields at Hillington.

More than 12 millions bulbs are said to have been planted in the fields.
