The Lowestoft Memory Walk held its third annual walk on Sunday.

Organisers Suzan Collins and Jo Wilde said it was the best event ever.

'It was a fantastic event. A huge amount of people turned up, three times more than we've had previously.

'There was a great view of the sea, the sun was shining and there were horses out riding along the cliff top.'

Walkers either took part in a 2km or 4km route starting out at Pakefield Beacon.
