POLICE are getting ready for an expected 50,000 people to flood Weston during the T4 on the Beach festival.
Police are keen to make sure the weekend is safe and enjoyable for residents and visitors to the town.
Superintendent Richard Cadden said: “Once again this year we have worked closely with the organisers of T4 on the Beach so that we are able to provide a safe environment for everyone.
“In previous years the event has proved really successful and pass off with only a handful of minor incidents.
“There will be additional police officers on duty over the whole weekend to ensure that people can feel safe and be safe whether enjoying T4, having a day out in the town or going about their daily business.”
Police are asking people to think about what they can do to have a safe and incident-free weekend.
Last year, the majority of incidents reported to the police were lost or stolen mobile phones.
Supt Cadden added: “This summer promises to be a busy one in Weston, especially with the new Grand Pier attracting many more visitors to the town and we look forward to welcoming back T4 on the Beach again this year.”
Avon and Somerset police have continued to run a website dedicated solely to the event.
The festival is being held on July 10 on the beach in Weston.
