Norfolk Police has announced it'll carry out an internal review of the way it dealt with problems at Cromer last weekend - following a visit by the Chief Constable to the seaside town.
There were reports of trouble and businesses shut early on one of the busiest weekends of the year as tensions rose following the arrival of travellers at the resort.
Many people have been critical of the way police dealt with the problems, but Simon Bailey says he has listened to concerns raised by the community and lessons will be learnt.
People in Cromer are feeling very angry, let down and fearful of the same holiday period this time next year.
This is why it is so important that I want to give a reassuring message to those visiting Cromer and the residents that there will be additional resources in Cromer this weekend.
I will be working very closely with partners that the lawlessness we saw won't happen again.
I need to look at the totality of the response and through the review, know what happened. I need to ensure this doesn't happen again and rebuild the confidence of the community as soon as possible.
The Chief Constable of Norfolk Police apologises for the way the community was let down after troubles in Cromer
It comes after a weekend of disruption in the seaside town of Cromer, which was put into ‘lockdown’ as a result of antisocial behaviour.
Norfolk Police were warned a group of travellers who had been causing disturbances in Suffolk could be on their way to the county.
