With lockdown restrictions on the hospitality industry easing next month, campsites across Norfolk and Waveney have been experiencing an upsurge in calls and bookings.

While some sites will not be able to open immediately - as their toilets are shared facilities - others are planning to open again for campers on July 4.

Here is a list of campsites across the county reopening on that date:
