Airbourne was quiet and successful from the view of Eastbourne Police.

Eastbourne District Police Commander Chief Inspector Emma Brice said, "Once again, Airbourne was a great event for the town. Sussex Police works closely with event organisers Eastbourne Borough Council and other emergency services during the planning stages to make it as safe as possible for everyone who takes part in or comes to enjoy the event.

"Police dealt with a small number of incidents over the four days, including thefts of items on the beach, drunkenness, and fraudulent charity collectors, but given the thousands of people who attended we were delighted at the outcome. We made two arrests for fraud, two for drunk and disorderly, one for breach of the peace and one for someone wanted on warrant. Just three crimes were reported - a common assault and two thefts."

Chief Inspector Brice added, "Our police cadets dealt with several missing and found children, and helped to quickly reunite them with their families. I was on duty throughout the event and spoke to many visitors who were having a great time and enjoying this fantastic family occasion and, of course, the glorious weather."
