Bumper Bank Holiday enjoyed by Burnham-On-Sea traders

Tourism businesses in Burnham-On-Sea have enjoyed a bumper Bank Holiday weekend as sunny weather attracted crowds of visitors.

Newly-opened ice cream parlour Flavours on The Esplanade was among the firms which benefited, according to owner Nigel Burrow (pictured).

He told "It's been a great first week of trade for us. There's been lots of demand for our award-winning, locally-made ice cream. The great weather has certainly helped."

And one of Burnham's holiday traditions, the beach donkeys, were also kept busy. Owner Debbie Banwell told "The beach has been busier than normal for the time of the year and our donkeys have proved popular."

Friday's Royal Wedding celebrations in Burnham - covered here - also helped to further boost trade in the town.
