Organisers are already planning for the third and final North Walsham Street Feast of the year after the success of the most recent event. 

Up to 2,000 people were at the festival of street food in the town's Market Place over the first July weekend.

Penney Spall, chair of the markets committee on North Walsham Town Council, said: "There were 1,500-2,000 people there to enjoy the Market Place and the what the street feast offered.

"There was a good variety of food types for everyone to enjoy plus the local shops, pubs and cafes were open."
