Parking charges are back in force at two Norfolk beaches.

Visitors now have to pay to park at Heacham North and Heacham South.

West Norfolk Council's website says tickets are priced £2 for one hour, £4 for two, £5 for three and £6 for all day until June 30.

After that, the all day charge will increase to £7 until August 31. An evening charge of £2 also applies.

Parking will become free again from November 1 until February 28, 2025.

Resident's permits costing £52.80, valid until October 31, are available for both car parks to those who can prove they live in the village.

Both beaches are popular with dog walkers, who enjoy their wide-open expanse of sand and tidal mud flats at low tide.

But they have also been dogged by concerns over water quality in recent years, which have sparked warnings not to swim.
