A birdseye picture shows how busy Great Yarmouth was over the bank holiday weekend.

The photo, captured by drone photographer Matthew Collins for his Arielshotsuk Instagram page, shows a long line of traffic along the seafront, stretching from beyond the Big Wheel to the Pleasure Beach.

The Golden Mile was busy with people from home and away, as a combination of half term and sunshine brought holidaymakers and locals to the resort.

For many people, it was the first time they had been able to reunite with their families, and the sunny weather made the occasion even more brilliant.

The weekend was also a welcome boost for seafront traders, who were closed this time last year, with a sense now of 'making hay while the sun shines'.

Other aerial photos captured by Mr Collins show Caister water tower and a paraglider high above the coast.
