Norfolk Police were warned a group of travellers who had been causing disturbances in Suffolk could be on their way to the county, a neighbouring force has said.
It comes after a weekend of disruption in the seaside town of Cromer, which was said to be put into ‘lockdown’ as a result of antisocial behaviour and groups of men causing trouble.
Now Suffolk Police say they had warned their colleagues after they had served a group of travellers with a local authority notice to leave Lowestoft.
Norfolk Police have come under fire for their reaction to the antisocial behaviour in Cromer at the weekend, with an alleged rape also potentially being linked to the arrival of the group.
