The glorious sunshine over most of the Bank Holiday weekend brought out the crowds to Brightlingsea Regatta for one of the traditional highlights of the Essex summer season.

Two men from Essex have been arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated social media comments in the wake of the Manchester Arena attack.

From a small one-off gig in memory of a friend, a Suffolk festival has now celebrated their 10th event with a star-studded lineup and their biggest ever turnout.
