A Norfolk superstore shocked people on Facebook this morning when it shared a photo of some dolphins swimming in the Norfolk Broads.

Lathams Superstore, part of the QD group, shared the photoshopped image online to celebrate April Fools day.

However, little did they know the huge reaction it would have.

“We just put it on Facebook for a bit of fun and we did not expect this reaction. It has gone far and wide and had hundreds of likes and shares,” said Jack Kinsey from QD’s Norwich office.

They asked if anyone else had managed to capture pictures of the sight and got a huge response.

At the time of writing, the post had nearly 1,000 reactions, over 500 shares and hundreds of comments.
