Blue flags awarded to a dozen sunny Anglia beaches

Watch Malcolm Robertson's report.

Two beaches in North Norfolk have been awarded Blue Flags for the very first time - but there has been disappointment for some of the region's other seaside resorts.

A total of 12 areas have been recognised by the Keep Britain Tidy group - which looks at safety and water quality.

Six of those are in north Norfolk, one is Suffolk and five are in Essex.

Lowestoft and Frinton both lost their flags.
