Danile Hurd, Hemsby Lifeboat coxswain, said the day had been ‘absolutely amazing’.

Estimating the event had attracted three to four thousand people he said: “It was brilliant just to see the amount of support we got. We just want to thank the members of the public, traders and everyone that helped us.

“This year has probably been the best year we have ever had.”

All the money raised from the day will go towards the Hemsby Lifeboat station.
