A children’s entertainer has been left “gutted” after his mobile disco was stolen from outside his home.

The mobile disco, which was on a twin axle box trailer, belonged to Alex Seaton, of Lowestoft, who runs ClownAround Castles.

The trailer was taken between noon and 8pm from Guscott Close, on the Parkhill estate.

It contained a sound system, a laptop, a library of 40,000 songs and a bouncy castle.

Mr Seaton, 44, said he would be replacing all the equipment this week and had been in touch with people who had booked him to confirm he would be carrying on as usual this weekend.

Mr Seaton, who has had the children’s mobile disco for 25 years and works across Norfolk and Suffolk, said he was “gutted” by the theft.

The twin axle trailer was green in colour, both back lights were broken and it had a bar across the back doors.

Anyone with information on the theft can call Suffolk police on 101.
