Confusion turned to delight for shoppers yesterday as a team of dancing grannies took to the streets in Portsmouth.

The Dancing Grannies troupe were seen dancing outside the Specsavers in Commercial Road – strutting their stuff to pop hits all afternoon long.

The activity by Specsavers Portsmouth was used to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining eye health and having regular eye checks – with staff from the opticians offering free eye test vouchers to passers-by.
