Michelle Homfray, 38, from North Walsham, said: "We've got a Haven Holidays break in Yorkshire planned for half term. I've got two kids so as a family, it's good. We're not going to travel abroad this year - you can't get a two-year-old to wear a mask on a plane."

Wendy Wilson, 72, from North Walsham, said: "We usually go abroad every year, but obviously not this year. I'm going to Scotland in July, to stay a friend's house for a week. My brother's got an apartment in Turkey, so we usually go there, but that's a 'red' district at the moment so we won't be going there."
