But it was a different story half an hour down the coast, according to police, who said they handed out eight fines amid reports that hundreds of people had visited Sea Palling.

Despite the low turnout in Cromer, chip shop Mary Jane's said it had seen a steady flow of customers.

Justin Couse, who works at Mary Jane's said: "There's been a few about, it's steady business, they're all keeping their distance and following the rules to the letter.

"There is a few faces we don't recognise out there, but they all seem to be being good."
