The annual three-day Morston book sale in north Norfok ended after 10 years in May.

But hundreds of their books have now ended up with the Grand Second Hand Book sales in Thompson, near Watton.

Thompson spokesman Keith Mace said: "Our book sales were started only about three years ago in Griston parish church.

"It worked very well and we started doing three sales each year, but quickly outgrew the church.
