Police investigating reports that two men approached people along Felixstowe promenade demanding cash are appealing for a man and a woman to come forward.

A pair of men approached two separate people in Felixstowe asking for money.

Both incidents occurred between 11pm and 11.30pm on Sunday, October 11.
