New aerial photos show that progress is being made on three major developments in Great Yarmouth.

The photos, captured by drone photographer Matthew Collins for his Arielshotsuk Instagram page, show steady progress on the Market Place's £4.6m revamp, the preparations to begin the third river crossing and signs of disrepair in St George's Park.
