There may be raw east wind blowing and temperatures hovering close to freezing but it was still time for the spring clean for the camera on the roof of ITV Anglia in Norwich.

The remote-controlled camera beams live pictures into the studio to provide the backdrop for ITV News Anglia bulletins.

Intrepid ITV Anglia technicians Andy Taylor and David Kingdom donned their safety harnesses to scale the building and clean the camera high above the city centre streets.
