Holidays are back on the agenda as lockdown eases - with the chance of a foreign getaway a possibility.

Our reporter Aaron McMillan asked people if they are planning a vacation, staycation or staying at home this summer.

Stephen Tasker, 60, from Fakenham: “I haven’t got a holiday plan at the moment, I think I will just stay at home and work, as my business has picked up. If I did decide to go away, I would go abroad as I just think it feels more like a holiday.”

Carol King, 75, from Fakenham: “We are hopeful of going on holiday to Tenerife in October. I think it is quite safe over there, I have friends there and they said how safe it is. As long as you keep your mask on and follow the rules we should be okay.”
