A North Norfolk village has been left to clear up toilet paper and human waste from visitors to the beach.
The warm weather has seen an influx of visitors to Weybourne near Cromer.
The parish council have reported that fishermen have been staying overnight on the beach, and toilet roll has filled hedgerows.
In Great Yarmouth, the authorities are still urging visitors to stay away from the resort but will open some public toilets for the Bank Holiday weekend.
The local council is reinforcing the message that seafront car parks remain closed, along with tourist attractions, hotels, holiday parks and campsites.
In Weybourne, Lyndon Swift, co-landlord of The Ship Inn, said the government have "opened the floodgates" by easing the lockdown measures too quickly.
He added: "We can't blame the people for wanting to be out, the message was too early and too free.
"There were families and large groups of people coming down, sitting and having drinks and having picnics, that were obviously not from the same household."
Visitors have also impacted the mental health of the village's elderly residents, Mr Swift added.
"We have an elderly population who are already anxious and their anxiety levels were heightened by the number of visitors arriving," he said.
Calls for people to stay away have been backed by the Norfolk Coast Partnership.
Manager Estelle Hook said: "In many places on the coast there is not the infrastructure to support the necessary social distancing or to ensure that visitors have the facilities they would usually expect, such as car parks or toilets."
She added that the organisations responsible for looking after the coastline want to welcome back visitors "but at the present time it is safer to stay away".
