A UKIP councillor who was reported missing to police because he was so busy attending meetings was showing it is not all hard work today.

Denis Crawford joined councillors and community groups in Thetford to celebrate the handover of the town's play areas from Breckland Council to Thetford Town Council.

The visit even gave Mr Crawford a chance to go on the seesaw with Labour councillors, Brenda Canham and Terry Jermy.

His story, which saw police track him down after neighbours feared for his whereabouts following a two-day run of six council meetings, became national news after it was revealed in the EDP today.

Thetford Town Council have also started using the hashtag #wheresdenis on Twitter, to keep an eye on him.
