People were encouraged to open up and talk to one another outside a Norwich landmark with the help of giant pairs of underwear. 

The Camerados movement, which encourages people to look out for each other more, was displaying pants on a washing line outside The Forum on Friday. 

A board next to clothing items asked those passing "When life is pants, what gets your through?".

The pants, which came with an array of colourful patterns, were easily visible for those in the city centre to spot for a chat with members of the movement.

Organisers said the Covid pandemic has shown the importance of looking out for one another.
