Regal celebrations are taking place across Norfolk today (Thursday) to mark the Queen's 90th birthday.

In Cromer, town crier Jason Bell will be congratulating the Queen with a public announcement outside the parish church at 11am and there will be a public chorus of Happy Birthday.

This will be followed by a torch lit procession from Cromer Parish Church to the Old Lookout on the east cliff at 7pm followed by the lighting of the beacon and firework display.

Beacons will also be lit in Sheringham, Holt and Mundesley at 7.30pm.

Prayers will be said on Shirehall Plain in Holt at 7pm before a beacon is lit. The ceremony in Sheringham will take place on the seafront, at the Leas.
