Scores of new faces have been elected to town and parish council across north Norfolk.

As well as last week's district council elections, voters also had the chance to chose who represents them at an even more local level.

However unlike at the district level, many of those who stood at the parish level did so as independent candidates.

Councils which had ballots included Beeston Regis, Happisburgh, Holt, Ingham, Ingworth, North Walsham and Trimingham.

Candidates who had the most votes cast for them included, on Holt Town Council: Duncan Baker (694 votes), Rodney Smith (632), Sarah Tribe (614); and on North Walsham Town Council, for West ward, Nicholas Felstead (490), Folik Choudhury (480) and Jennifer Melville (473).
