Dinosaurs and cartoon characters were among the hundreds of runners who took part in a fun run on a Suffolk seafront.

Felixstowe Fun Run took place on Bank Holiday Monday when more than 700 participants completed a sponsored run or walk around a mile-long course.

Organised by the town's Rotary Club, the event involved running or walking a measured circuit centred on the Spa Pavilion theatre as many times as possible in an hour.
