David Scott, who patrols outside Pakefield Primary, has been officially named as the best on the east coast after a competition run by the Beach radio station.

The search to find a patrol officer who goes the extra mile when it comes to keeping children safe was launched last month, and hundreds of nominations from across Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth were received.

But Mr Scott was a favourite among kids and parents. For over 11 years he has got to know all the children's names, he goes to see their school shows, and even helps out Father Christmas.

And now he is the proud recipient of a special reflective jacket as well as the title of The Beach Best.

Programme controller, Paul Carter, said: “The Beach takes child safety very seriously and as well as highlighting the work of our lollipop people, thousands of free reflective stickers are being given away this week as part of our annual Be Safe Be Seen campaign.”
