Police in Great Yarmouth have praised a funfair which took over St George's Park for four days as a "positive" event.

The funfair was the first in the town for two years and took place between Thursday, October 21 and Sunday, October 24.

It drew large crowds and featured classic rides such as waltzers, a helter skelter and the dodgems.
