For many, August Bank Holiday Monday means a welcome extra day off school or work, extending a summer weekend's merriment. East Anglians choose a day at the coast, whether waterskiing, enjoying a beer and jive dancing on the beach or taking in the sea view from the comfort of a deck chair. Anglia Television news document all the fun on Southend's seafront, Cromer promenade and beach, Sheringham funfair, and Felixstowe.
