Emergency services have cordoned off a bouncy castle on Great Yarmouth beach amid reports of an incident.
People at the scene say four police cars and a forensic van rushed to the area just south of the Jetty.
A police spokesman said they were aware of the incident although the force was not leading on it.
The spokesman said she understood someone may have been involved in an incident, but were not thought to be seriously injured.
An eyewitness said the play apparatus had been deflated and that officers were taking photographs as families played on the beach nearby.
