Safety measures to tackle vandalism

PUBLISHED: 12:22 30 January 2002 | UPDATED: 15:24 03 March 2010

CCTV cameras could be installed in a vandalism-plagued area in the heart of a community still coming to terms with the brutal murder of a pensioner.

The proposal is part of a scheme by the Ipswich and Norwich Co-operative Society to improve the shopping parade in the centre of Capel St Mary, close to where pensioner Joan Albert, 79, was found stabbed to death in her Boydlands home on December 16.

The proposal is part of a scheme by the Ipswich and Norwich Co-operative Society to improve the shopping parade in the centre of Capel St Mary, close to where pensioner Joan Albert, 79, was found stabbed to death in her Boydlands home on December 16.

Members of Babergh District Council's development committee were to discuss a package of proposals by the Co-op to improve the parade of shops at their meeting today.

The proposals include installing disabled parking spaces, access ramps onto the pavements, installing an automatic banking machine, security lights and CCTV, and changes to the car park and landscaping.
