A group dressed up as satirical character Ali G gained local 'respek' after they caught the attention of those they passed with their distinctive bright yellow clothing.

Ali G was in Long Stratton on October 30, when more than 17 people took to the town after dressing up as the fictional character.

The group wore the trademark yellow outfit, tinted glasses and cap as part of birthday celebrations for Sam Page, 30, from Saxlingham, and to also celebrate the satirical television series created by and starring comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

They started out at The Swan Inn in Long Stratton before travelling to and around Norwich, and are said to have caused a storm locally after being "inundated" with hundreds of people wanting pictures.

Dan Sadler said: "Everyone loved it wherever we went as a group, from the bus driver through to passers-by in Norwich, and even the DJs in the club played Booyaka all night."

Theresa Taylor posted on Facebook: "Anyone missing an Ali G? Last seen around The Street, Stratton."

Rachel Rodger responded: "He's in da house."
