Incredible photos of the Milky Way have been captured rising over Shingle Street.

The phenomenon was spotted by astronomy photographer Alison Bailey who was visiting Suffolk for the first time earlier this month.

Miss Bailey, who only took up astrophotography as a hobby back in January, captured the moment the Milky Way emerged on Saturday, June 5 and could not believe what she was seeing. 

She said: "I could not believe how clear the Milky Way was at Shingle Street with just the naked eye. 

"It was amazing. I'll definitely be returning."
