Standards were lowered and flares were set off over the water to mark the 100th anniversary of the Zeppelin raid over Lynn and West Norfolk on the night of January 19, 1915.

Scores of people watched the light and sound show at Lynn Custom House on Monday evening .

The event, organised by West Norfolk Council, was held as part of a week of events to mark the anniversary.

Lynn and West Norfolk were brought into the frontline of the First World War as a Zeppelin dropped bombs and two people were killed.
