Sheringham sinkhole t-shirts are going down a treat at a town centre charity shop, with more than a dozen snapped up by souvenir hunters within hours of them going on sale.

Emblazoned with the slogan 'I've visited the Sheringham sinkhole', the white shirts were the idea of RSPCA shop manager Julie Spooner, who last week printed a stack of sinkhole postcards, which she handed out to customers in return for a donation.

"Obviously our sympathies are with the traders who can't open, but the t-shirts are a bit of fun and anything that encourages people to come and shop locally helps everybody," Ms Spooner said.

The t-shirts, which come in a range of adults' and children's sizes and were printed by Jack Southwell and Adam Blyth of High Street clothing store Never Be Famous, are on sale for £6.50, with all profits going to the RSPCA.
