And three beauty spots in north Norfolk have received their Green Flags.

Sadler's Wood, near North Walsham, has re-joined Holt Country Park and Pretty Corner Woods, near Sheringham, in being recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme.

Holt Country Park has held its position for 14 years and was joined by Pretty Corner Woods in 2013.

Sadler's Wood first received the accolade in 2012 and, despite just missing out last year, it has re-claimed its place.
