A charity walker dropped in at three north Norfolk lifeboat stations, as part of a 9,500 mile trek around the British and Irish Coast.

Alex Ellis-Roswell set off from his home town of Margate, in Kent, in August 2014, setting himself a £10,000 fundraising target.

He has since covered more than 9,000 miles, raising more than £50,000 for the RNLI.

After calling at Heacham, Snettisham and Hunstanton, Mr Ellis-Roswell, 24, dropped in at Sheringham lifeboat station before going on to Cromer, where he stayed with a crew member.

He was then welcomed by crew members at Happisburgh lifeboat station, before continuing on to the Suffolk Coast.

Sheringham crew member Jamie Crisp said Mr Ellis-Roswell had tucked in to a pizza and a can of Guinness during his visit.

'After some much-needed rest, Alex was looking forward to visiting the Mo Museum and treating himself to some local ice cream,' he added.
