They have responded to a plea from the Malawi Police Service for redundant equipment.

Assistant Chief Constable Colin Langham-Fitt will hand over a Philips PFX handheld radio to Mr Dzonzi, Deputy Commissioner of the Malawi Police Service at a short ceremony today at force headquarters, Martlesham.
