Calls are being made for Cromer to get a seafront mural on the curved white wall on the Red Lion steps.

Archant photographer Antony Kelly posted a photo of the area on the Enjoy Cromer More Facebook group, with a suggestion that the wall would be perfect for some artwork by local artist Colin Seal.

The idea quickly gathered pace, with comments on the group including:

? Paul James: 'I see your Colin Seal and raise you Samuel Thomas.'

? Tim Love: 'Brilliant idea - would look amazing!'

? Jackie Rivett: 'LOVE this idea!! Plenty of local artists would I'm sure relish the chance to have that as a canvas.'

Former Cromer mayor Tim Adams said the area belonged to North Norfolk District Council, and he hoped it would allow a mural on the wall.
