Thursday was World Book Day, and that meant only one thing, people dressing up as their favourite characters.

Across the Diss Express area, we were sent in pictures of people donning costumes to celebrate their best-loved page turners.

So, from Harry Potter to Matilda, Spider-Man to The Hungry Caterpillar, here is our picture gallery:
