Devon and Cornwall Police Drones has shared birds’ eye footage of the packed-out Goldcoast Oceanfest in Croyde this weekend.

Devon and Cornwall Police’s drone unit has shared footage showing a packed-out Oceanfest from the skies.

The mid-summer festival enjoyed scorching temperatures as revellers packed to see headliners Sigma, Kaiser Chiefs and Scouting For Girls over the weekend.

The drone unit was at the festival all weekend, keeping an eye on visitors to help the police teams on the ground.

Superintendent Toby Davies said broadly speaking, the festival was very well-natured with limited requirement for police intervention.

He said: “There were a couple of arrests, but for an event attended by so many this is not out of the ordinary.

“Our thanks go out to the organisers, local community, other emergency services and of course the festival goers themselves, for making this such a successful trouble free event.

“The atmosphere was an overwhelmingly positive one and I know my staff enjoyed being part of it.”
