The fab four inspired outfits were part of the summer launch of the Sea Life Centre’s ‘Under the Ray-dar’ Zone on Saturday, July 29.

Central to the zone is a giant yellow submarine where visitors are able to see rays closer than ever through windows and magnifying views.

Paul Reid, guest experience manager, said: “It’s a brand new area focusing on conservation issues surrounding creatures from the UK.

“Our visitors can get inside and get up close to things like the undulate ray, the spotted ray and the thornback ray.”

“We are currently Europe’s biggest breeder of thornback rays. Which allows us to educate all our visitors about the creatures and help everyone understand the conservation issues facing them.”

John West,of Harbour Radio, was in attendance, he said: “I’m a big Beatles fan and interested in marine life so this was a perfect match. I am just happy to be showing support for all things Yarmouth.”
