Sue Ball, 77, retired from Cromer, said for a number of reasons, including coronavirus and the weather, the summer had been "rubbish".

"Cromer has never been busier, I've never known it so busy that this year. There are more tourists because they weren't able to go abroad or chance it, I think that's the reason really."
