Norman Shields (Norman Wisdom) is a local newspaper seller in London. He is happy with his current job, but is sent by his grandfather, the Prime Minister (also played by Wisdom), to take up a new job as a newspaper reporter in the fictional seaside town of Tinmouth.

During his time in Tinmouth he gets himself into all sorts of trouble while on the job reporting (starting an argument at a council meeting, for example). Later in the film he becomes reporter for the entertainment section of the newspaper and covers a beauty contest which his girlfriend Liz wins. They later return to London together, leaving a more politically settled Tinmouth behind.
