And the stunning sunshine was the perfect backdrop for scores of teddy boys and girls, who had turned out to rock along the seafront.

With live music and numerous vintage vehicles, the town mayor June Ford and hundreds of rockers welcomed special guests – veteran American rock and roll performers Hayden Thompson, Jack Scott and Gene Summers, who had all performed at Pontin's in Pakefield over the weekend – to town.

As well as the music and entertainment, there was even an appearance by the world jive champions – as the town rocked with scores of people hitting the seafront.
