Police were called to Market Gates Bus Station, in Great Yarmouth town centre at around 2.15pm today (Wednesday, March 20).

A man, thought to be under the influence of alcohol, had fallen asleep in Regent Road - blocking in all the buses and creating delays.

When he was stirred by a concerned member of the public he began to verbally abuse them.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: “A man had been seen lying down in a bus lane and being verbally abusive to members of the public.
