Cromer is today open for business after a weekend of 'lockdown' triggered by intimidation and petty crime from visiting gangs.
Some shops and pubs closed their doors for parts of the weekend following reports of shoplifting and groups refusing to leave.
The situation made the town the focus of national media attention, but today there is a concerted effort to right any misconceptions and demonstrate that Cromer is a safe and welcoming town.
Gary Dickenson, president of Cromer Chamber of Trade and Business said: 'I want to stress that normally Cromer is a wonderfully safe town where locals and visitors stroll the streets at all times of the day and night without any worries whatsoever, that's one of the many reasons we attract so many visitors throughout the year.'
