A seaside village was packed with visitors as many raced to the beach to soak up some sun on the hottest day of the year.
In Sea Palling, sand castles were being built and ice creams were melting as temperatures reached 21 degrees.
The village's district councillor Harry Blathwayt said the village had been much calmer than last year despite the crowds, as businesses and villagers begin to understand how to welcome visitors in a Covid safe way.
He said: "My phone hasn't been red hot as it was last year so I think people are being more accepting of the amount of visitors.
"Everybody seems to be absolutely behaving themselves, I think people are more aware and also I think people are more cautious because they don't want another wave.
