Yesterday saw resorts and communities along the Suffolk coast enjoying a large influx of visitors, with everyone making for hotspots urged to be careful and maintain social distancing.

Felixstowe seafront was busy all day with large numbers of people on the prom, playing and relaxing on the beach in family groups, and paddling and swimming in the sea.

It was a similar picture at Lowestoft, Southwold and Aldeburgh.

It is expected to be the same today with temperatures forecast to reach 23C and higher inland, with it being a little bit cooler on the coast.
