But one prankster in north Norfolk has taken the sun safety message a little too far.

Cromer's GoGo charity hare was found at 10.30pm last night smeared with sun cream.

Teresa Guest, 55, from Norwich, visited Cromer with her son Alex, 22, on Thursday, July 26, to fly his drone and take pictures of the sunset.

She said: 'I'm sorry to report the big hare has been smothered in sun cream - every side has been affected.
