A couple who have been coming on holiday to Great Yarmouth for nearly half a century have met the mayor for tea.
John and Muriel Greenock have been visiting the resort since 1970.
To celebrate this, and Mrs Greenock's 75th birthday, their children contacted the council to ask if they could meet the mayor Kerry Robinson-Payne.

Mr Greenock said: 'We just love the place, but it's a shame certain things have been left to go down.'
Mrs Greenock agreed, saying they used to love going to shows in the evenings but there is less to do nowadays as things shut earlier, but they said they had no plans to not come back.
