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.
