A video has revealed the moment a van driver laughed triumphantly after he ploughed into a huge puddle to splash two unsuspecting pedestrians in Great Yarmouth.

The footage which was filmed by a passenger in the van shows it turning around in South Beach Parade and speeding up before drenching the two victims.

The incident took place just outside the Pleasure Beach and was uploaded onto a public page on Facebook called Traveller Feuds Newist on November 18.

As the vehicle approaches, the puddle the driver said to the camera: 'Here we have, lads, a shower. It's a shower.'

The pair can then be heard gleefully laughing after the incident.
