A teenage singer has released a music video which uses Great Yarmouth seafront as its backdrop.

Ronan Williams, 15 and from Loddon, released a music video for his song Cola which shows the singer along Regent Road, on the beach and by Britannia Pier.

Ronan said after he wrote the song, he and his mother, Sharon, knew they wanted to use the town as a location for the video.

He said: "I feel like the Hamburger on Regent Road was great as a location because it is so retro and classic.

"It felt very good to be in there."

The shoot, which was produced by Jordon Thomas Sendall - who recently used Great Yarmouth as the setting for an award-winning film on a mythical sea creature - took over two hours to record.

"It looked very, very good," Ronan said.

"I was very happy with it."

Ronan, who is in Year 10 at Hobart High School, said the song was about being attracted to someone who is not that interested in you.

Once the video had been produced, the young singer moved on to the next project and released the track Stay.

"I have a couple of songs recorded and at the moment I'm in the middle of writing an upbeat summer song," he said.
