Bosses of the TV show Kingdom have promised to underwrite repair costs after causing damage to one of Swaffham's landmark monuments.
The producers of the popular series said the southern side of the war memorial facing the market square has been scratched while filming took place in the area.
Earlier this year, members of the Royal British Legion put on the same side a new plaque dedicated to local heroes fallen in conflict.
An ITV spokeswoman said: “The production company of Kingdom have admitted responsibility as they requested to do some filming at the memorial.
