A man was arrested and eight others reported for speeding in a crackdown on 'boy racers'.

Eight drivers were reported for speeding on Great Yarmouth seafront on Sunday – five were driving at over 47mph in a 30mph area.

A man was arrested and charged for drink driving. He is due to appear at Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court on August 21.

Two drivers were reported for disobeying the no entry sign on Dickens Avenue.

Inspector McCarthy of the Operational Partnership Team said: 'It's the small majority that drive with no respect for the law and give the event a bad name that we are targeting, the teams will continue to police this weekly gathering in the forthcoming weeks, my message is drive in accordance with your driver training and the Highway Code or risk your licence.'

As part of the crackdown, the Special Constabulary was deployed with speed detection equipment and the police mobile CCTV van was used.
