A publicity launch for the campaign to keep Britain in the European Union didn't go quite to plan when a van displaying a giant poster arrived in Great Yarmouth town centre.

The van was due to be in the Market Place from 9.30am to 10.30am yesterday (February 11) but a traffic warden asked the driver to move the vehicle, as it was not allowed to be parked there, so it only stayed for 15 minutes.

The driver also said he actually supported the campaign to leave the EU.

The Britain Stronger in Europe campaign brought its new campaign poster states that hundreds-of-thousands of jobs in the region were linked to staying in the European Union.

After launching their poster earlier in the week, the message claims that 373,000 jobs in the East of England were linked to the UK's trade with the EU.
