Aerial photos show Great Yarmouth town centre illuminated after nightfall by the multicoloured rides of the Easter Fair.

The Marketplace shone with circles and strings of light late on Friday (April 22) when local photographer Luke Martin sent his drone and camera into the skies above the town.

The fair opened on Thursday afternoon (April 21) for the first time in three years.

The centuries old attraction last visited in 2019 but was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 in response to the continued Covid threat.
