Happy Yorkshire Day from the Whitby Gazette

Yorkshire Day went down a treat in Whitby as people rushed to the seaside to soak up the sun.

Kids cooled off in the sea, puppies snoozed in the shade and the cobbled streets were crammed with visitors.

Meanwhile, locals went about their daily business from operating the steam bus and boat trips to serving up fish and chips at the world famous Magpie Cafe - all of which makes Whitby quintessentially Yorkshire.

It was an early start at the Whitby Gazette, with reporters arriving at 7am to put the finishing touches to Friday’s newspaper, but Emma and Karl managed to sneak out in the afternoon to grab this video of people enjoying the day.
