Town and district councillor for Cromer, Andreas Yiasimi, has danced through the streets of his town dressed in a nightgown.

Mr Yiasmi donned a nightdress and cap and took on the character of nursery rhyme character Wee Willie Winkie to raise awareness and money for Seal and Shore Watch, a group set up last year to help protect seals and other marine birds and wildlife.

Carrying a candleholder, he knocked on several shop windows asking if the people inside were awake, before prancing down to the pier, where he cavorted in front of an open-air performance by shanty band the Blakeney Old Wild Rovers.

Mr Yiasimi said: “Some people didn’t know about (Seal and Shore Watch) and we’ve created awareness today.

“Wildlife along the coast is very important and we’ve got to look after our animals.

“I just have a very small part to add to it.”

The group aims to become a registered charity and set up a field hospital for rescued seals.
