FUN-seekers turned out in their droves to a coastal town's fair yesterday - basking in some of the country's finest weather.

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

John Law, a forecaster with Weatherquest, said: “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. 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.

Stan Harris, organiser, said: “It is going great. The weather is in our favour and we have had lots of people visit already. It is just a normal traditional fun fair with a variety of rides.”
