Coats and scarves have made way for short sleeves and sunglasses, as school children and workers alike delight in finally spending their free time outdoors.

With the mercury soaring to a seasonal high of 21 degrees, springtime has properly arrived - and it is glorious.

Our photographers have been out and about capturing images of this beautiful day - and our readers have also sent in a few great pictures.

We would love to see what you have been up to in the warm weather as well. Please share your springtime photos via norfolk.iwitness24.co.uk, post them to any of our Facebook pages or tweet them to @edp24.
