A photographer sharing his images on social media wants to help those self-isolating to "see the beauty of the countryside".

Brad Damms, from Norfolk, has posted landscape and wildlife images daily.

It follows guidance that people showing coronavirus symptoms or at high risk should isolate at home for protection.

Mr Damms said he hopes that, for people unable to go out, his photos "lift spirits and take their mind off our current situation."

"I have posted a few images and videos the last few days and had a great response."

The government advice is that those with symptoms of coronavirus should self-isolate.

Though others can exercise outdoors once a day, police forces have warned against heading to popular beauty spots - so Mr Damms has been sharing the beauty online.

"It's not much but if it helps to make someone smile then I'm happy.

"I think at this point in time we all should be doing what we can, no matter how small, to help each other."
