The incident happened at around 10.55am yesterday (Tuesday, June 11) as the annual parade made its way through the Capital's city centre.

People on the parade, which is organised by the city's taxi drivers to give children with special needs a day at the seaside, tend to shoot water pistols at people in the crowd as they pass.

The video was shot by Sheila Purvis, who was passing the scene at the time.

A police officer had to ask the man to move.
