EAST Anglia is set for a sunny Easter - despite the threat of some showers on Saturday, forecasters have predicted.

The Suffolk coastline recorded some of the country's highest temperatures on Good Friday, reaching 17C in parts of the county.

John Law, a forecaster with Weatherquest, said yesterday: “If you look towards the Suffolk coast it has been a very pleasant day, temperatures picked up throughout the day. We have had the best of the weather.”

Unfortunately the good weather is not expected to last todaywith colder temperatures and patches of rain expected.

However, this is expected to clear away by Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday with more sunshine forecast.

The annual Easter Fair is in Felixstowe all weekend and, no doubt helped by the weather, it proved extremely popular yesterday.
