Beautiful pictures have surfaced on social media of Sunday night's sunset - showing popping pinks and electric oranges - a stark contrast to the skies earlier that day.

The sunset was snapped over Sudbury, Great Cornard, Southwold, Felixstowe and Colchester - with many people mesmerised by mother nature.

Moira Chapman posted a picture of a bright pink sky over Felixstowe, with the caption "a few sunset pics to brighten the day after a rainy cloudy Sunday".

While John Fitch in Great Cornard said it looked like the "sky was on fire" and "no filters were needed".
