Parks and beaches in Norfolk were heaving on Tuesday as the spring skies brought people flocking out to soak up the sun.

It was one of the hottest days of the year so far with temperatures reaching near 20c.

And the great weather looks set to continue into tomorrow and later in the week, with Norfolk expected to enjoy warmer days than Ibiza.

"It's such a lovely day, " said Mr Cameron, 37, adding: "So instead of being stuck in the house all day, we thought we'd come and get some sun."
