More than a hundred people have staged a protest on Felixstowe seafront in Suffolk today against beach hut rent rises.

They are angry that rent for huts has gone up by 12% and chalets by 20% this year which they say is higher than anywhere else in the region.

Suffolk Coastal District Council is justifying the rise by saying the extra money is going towards funding public facilities in the town.
