Mr Cooper, who has taken part in the tug of war for the past five years, said the event stood the crew in good stead for the Cromer versus Sheringham contest, which takes place during Cromer carnival week.

'We are three-nil up at the moment and I'm pretty confident we'll win again this year,' he added. 'It's great entertainment, it's a good laugh and it's a good old traditional event.'
