A doughnut van parked outside a city centre pub is sprinkling joy with a range of sweet treats on offer.

Destiny's Donuts launched last summer at the Gibraltar Gardens pub in Heigham Street, but owners Gareth Dunthorne and Holly Sharman wanted to move to the city centre to get higher footfall.

The couple, who live in Heartsease and named the business after their daughter, have now managed to secure a pitch at the front of The Pig and Whistle pub in All Saints Green.

The pub was taken on by new landlady and landlord Kate Burnell and Brad Taylor earlier this year. 

On offer is hot sugared doughnuts, either plain or served with cream and sauces, candyfloss, popcorn, rock dummies, rock, and chocolate bars alongside a range of drinks.

Mr Dunthorne said: "When you went to the coast as a child your parents would treat you to a doughnut or candyfloss and now people can get these things around the corner.

You can also get the Doughnut Surprise with cream and sauces from Destiny's Doughnuts.
