  • How many of them were parked so that they were obstructing the pavement? Knowing Ipswich motorists, I'd say there's a good chance all of them were. And if they were, then their drivers were both criminal and selfish, and deserve no sympathy.

  • just adding my pennysworth. left Ipswich 12 years ago for the sunshine state of Florida USA. Very,very rare something like this is reported on local newschannels. probably something to do with the fact that officers are armed and quick to engage when called to an offence !
