Surfers take to storm surge waves
Surfers in Norfolk
Some surfers are hoping to ride the waves all day
Surfers have been taking advantage of the sea conditions caused by a storm surge hitting the Norfolk coast.

About six were seen taking to the waves near Great Yarmouth in the morning, boosted by the high tide.

John McLellan, a stock controller at a DIY shop, said: "I work nights and we were sent home last night so we got here early in the car ready to surf."

The 19-year-old surfer, from Gorleston, said he hopes to ride the waves along the Norfolk beach all day.

"The tide is very high so the conditions are pretty good - although he waves aren't the biggest I've ever seen here.

"Hopefully we will be here most of the day."
