POLICE in Great Yarmouth praised the thousands of people who attended Gorleston Clifftop Festival last weekend, after the event passed off peacefully.

A spokesman said the event went very well from a policing point of view and thanked organisers, stewards and all who attended.

Clifftop wrestling bouts and aerial acrobatics sat alongside adrenaline-fuelled funfair rides to make this year's Gorleston Clifftop Festival the best ever.

Organisers reckon more than 10,000 people flocked to Gorleston cliffs over the weekend for the 15th annual event.

And they say that additions to the bill made 2012 the best year in the event's history.

Vicky Smith, event organiser, said: 'For the 15th anniversary we did it and we've done it proud.

Kids were enjoying the gala, I heard them running around the fair and enjoying the wrestling - it was fantastic.

'Of course we will keep it going for the 16th year and we will see its 20th anniversary in five years time.'
