Rowdy holidaymakers could be sent home in Butlins crackdown
Butlins holidaymakers who get involved in "unacceptable" behaviour in nearby pubs could be sent home in a new crackdown with police and the holiday resort.
Minehead attracts hoards of holidaymakers and while the crime rate does not generally go up, local residents are said to be intimitaed by alcohol-fuelled anti-social behaviour.
Butlins is funding additional police officers who will be on duty on their busy weekends this autumn.
The holiday company will also be warning guests of the consequences of any anti-social behaviour before they leave the site. Police say those who behave in an unacceptable fashion, will be escorted back to the site by police and will be asked to vacate their accommodation and leave the resort. They will forfeit their holiday, which will be non refundable.

Inspector Lisa Simpson said: "I am very pleased to be working with Butlins to ensure that Minehead is a safe, enjoyable and pleasant environment for both residents and visitors alike.
"This new scheme requires us all to work together – the police, Butlins, the town's licensed premises and the local community."
