  • Well spotted Victor. For a local paper that has been in print for over 60 years to print a picture of two Norfolk police officers in relation to vandalism in Ipswich is extraordinary. Is there no pictures of Suffolk officers in the archives.

  • Yet another poor photo selection to go with this Ipswich article. A very old photo ( they don't wear that uniform now) of Norfolk policemen.
