A statement from Great Yarmouth Police's social media feeds said:"The officers concentrated in particular on areas where anti-social behaviour has been recorded, speaking to members of the public as they passed.

"They even bumped into local celeb Jim Davidson, who had been performing at Britannia Pier."

Ahead of his show Mr Davidson said he enjoyed performing in the town as people are not offended by his jokes.
