Essential repair work is under way at the UK's most easterly park.

Work is needed at the Ness, owned and managed by Lowestoft Town Council.

A new permanent footpath will be constructed to formalise a route already used by walkers, along with repairs to the play park.

Some grassy areas will also be reseeded, with temporary fencing in place to allow the seed to establish.

Work, carried out by a contractor for East Suffolk Council, is due to be finished by early August.

The council's deputy leader Craig Rivett said: "The Ness is a unique maritime heritage site which was created for the Lowestoft community, and visitors, to enjoy.
