    The link you provided seems to suggest he died today

    At least it did a minute ago :)

    It's now been removed

    I know, it keeps changing, I'm so confused!

    There was a rumour he died last night, some people said they saw him today and that he died tonight at 8.30 and people saying it didn't happen at all!

    He's such a legend haha :eek: Tourists tried to avoid him because he looked creepy, he's just an old man with a stereo flapping some puppets around :D

    Let us know if he's there, he's always been a bit of a highlight when I've visited Norwich!

    He's a brave man to busk in Great Yarmouth, I certainly wouldn't fancy it :eek:

    OMG I know who you mean we saw him when we went to Great Yarmouth to pick up Willow last summer. We stayed there for 5 days and went into the town to do some shopping he was sitting outside a shop with his puppets dancing away. I agree he does look creepy but my friend lives in Great Yarmouth and she says he is just a harmless old man.

    The puppet man is definitely alive my son and I are staying at a friends house in Great Yarmouth and yesterday walked into town to do some shopping. We saw the puppet man with his puppets outside the shops. He is alive and well:D:D:D even if a bit scary as my son pointed out
