Hundreds travel to Hunstanton before wind and rain brings end to bank holiday fun

More news, no ads


Heavy rain and strong winds have brought an early end to the weekend fun along the West Norfolk coast today.

Only a few visitors were braving the elements this afternoon as what some might call typical bank holiday weather hit the area.

But, despite indifferent weather and lockdown still being just eased rather than removed, the crowds were out in force at Hunstanton yesterday.

Hundreds of people took the chance to stroll along the Promenade on this bank holiday weekend.

It was a day of sunshine and showers in West Norfolk with the weather not getting much above an unseasonably chilly 13C, although when the sun did make an occasional appearance it felt pleasant enough.

Some took to the beach, but rather fewer to the sea itself for obvious reasons. If they were, they were probably wearing wet suits for paddle boarding.

But the ice-cream parlour at the Pavillion on the seafront had at least one fan in Liv Bailey who tucked into a cornet on the beach.

Forecasters say the weather is likely to remain cool, though drier, for much of the rest of this week, with temperatures starting to climb next weekend.
