  • 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.

  • They may have 2 parents, but based on the area they live in, I bet one is always absent, pub or bookies.

  • Ahh...poor little things...probably from 1 parent families and don't know any better. We should all club together and get them new bikes. Maybe a rehabilitation seaside holiday? And a couple of cricket bats?

  • 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.
