In the summer season our beat area is very busy due to the arrival of our seasonal visitors and day visitors to our coastal area of Berrow, Brean and Burnham-on-Sea. Due to covid restrictions and limited foreign travel we are expecting this season to be very busy with visitors. It is reported that in the height of the season visitor occupation can rise to 70,000 persons.
We would expect to see an increase in anti social behaviour, night time economy related issues and disorder due to the rise in occupation figures.
