Video: Ahoy there! Tall ship Tres Hombres joins the fun at Great Yarmouth Maritime Festival

Great Yarmouth's quayside is buzzing with early visitors for the second day of the annual Maritime Festival.

Crowds watched as tall ship Tres Hombres was pulled up river by Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Lifeboat, after a lack of wind delayed her journey to the resort.

She is now anchored alongside the other VIP vessels, including fellow tall ship Minerva, Border Force cutter HMC Protector and MTB102, a motor torpedo boat dating back to 1937, and is set to welcome visitors aboard throughout the day.

Also joining Sunday's line up is the Great Yarmouth and Gorleston all weather lifeboat, Samarbeta.

The Sheringham Shantymen are among the groups returning to South Quay to perform on one of the many stages, and joining the musical fun for today is Wrentham Brass Band.
