Balloon World's Emma Knott with children Oliver (6) and Eddie (4) and her latest creation for VE Day.

It was tea and cakes all round when celebrations were held across the borough to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

Communities came together as best they could with music, singing and socially distanced street parties in towns and villages.

Homes were decorated with flags, balloons and bunting, people wore costumes from the period and tucked into afternoon tea in their gardens and driveways.

It was a double celebration in Bevis Way, off Marsh Lane in Gaywood, as residents joined forces to give their neighbour Rick Stewart a 60th birthday to remember.
