Numerous Norfolk offences detected in Europe-wide campaign


Road checks carried out in Norwich on Wednesday in support of a Europe-wide campaign to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on the roads have seen over a 30 people dealt with for offences including driving while using a mobile phone, driving with no insurance and driving while not wearing a seatbelt.


Police in both Suffolk and Norfolk carried out the checks across both counties during the day with targeted operations in Norwich and Lowestoft as part of Project Edward – European Day Without A Road Death – a campaign by TISPOL, the European Traffic Police Network, which aims to get people thinking seriously about road safety.


Officers from the Norfolk roads policing and firearms operations unit and other partner agencies took part.


As a result of the day –

14 drivers and three passengers were dealt with for not wearing a seatbelt

10 people were found driving while using a mobile phone

12 people were caught using a bus lane inappropriately


Two people were caught with windscreens with glass not as prescribed (one of the vehicles had a light transmission of only 4% with the legal requirement being 70%)


One driver was found not to be in proper control of their vehicle


And two people were found committing drugs offences.


In addition, 181 people were found to be driving with excess speed in the Costessey and Bowthorpe area, 1400 local children were given road safety education and 88 child seats were checked.


Police in Norfolk and Suffolk work closely with partner agencies, including Think! Norfolk Road Safety Partnership and the Suffolk Roadsafe Partnership, to educate drivers and improve safety. A lot of work is focused on the fatal four motoring offences of drink driving, speeding, using a mobile phone and not wearing a seatbelt.


Iain Temperton, Team Manager, Casualty Reduction Education & Development, said; “Achieving a zero figure on 21 September was always very unlikely. But we must aim for zero because no loss of life on Europe’s roads is acceptable and we remain committed to encouraging everyone to work together to eliminate road traffic deaths. </


“If more drivers, riders, pedestrians, cyclists and other road users can pause for a moment to reflect on simple ways to reduce risk and improve safety, then we will be going a long way towards that ultimate goal of no deaths on Europe’s roads.”


Sgt Peter Howlett, who led the team in Norwich on Wednesday, reflected on the results saying: “These results show that people are still not thinking about road safety and how their decisions could negatively impact on themselves and others.


“Our aim, along with our colleagues across the UK and Europe, is to reduce the number of those killed and seriously injured on our roads and we will continue to carry out these regular checks to deal with drivers who persist in putting lives at risk.”


Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner Lorne Greene, commenting on the results, said:
“It beggars belief that drivers and their passengers could be so oblivious to their own safety, and the safety of others, as to sit on seat belts rather than put them on, drivers dare to play Russian roulette by talking or texting on the phone with the engine on, ignoring the rules of the road. If this is you, are you angling to become another statistic? Do yourself and everyone else a favour and drive responsibly. PLEASE!”


Motorists are also being encouraged to sign a road safety pledge on the TISPOL website (www.tispol.org/edward).




Thank you.

The following is a local policing update for the Attleborough neighbourhood


Weekly crime summary 25 August 2016

Norfolk Police are reminding residents of the importance of water safety as the current warm weather looks to continue over the bank holiday weekend.


We would urge people to be aware of the potential dangers of swimming in the sea or diving into rivers, lakes and reservoirs.


  • Beware of powerful tidal waters and always read and obey any safety signs.
  • Do not jump or dive into rivers. Quick entry into cold water can cause your body to go into shock. Low water temperature can numb limbs and claim lives.
  • You won’t be able to judge the depth of water just by looking and there could be submerged hazards such as weeds, rubbish or pollution.
  • There may be strong currents, which could pull you downstream or under the surface of the water.
  • Never go into water if you have been drinking alcohol.
  • Don’t assume because you can swim in a pool that you can deal with the challenges of open water swimming. Swim in safe areas, or where there is supervision and/or a lifeguard.
  • Pilot launch to help residents in Thetford access more police services

Norfolk Constabulary is working with Norfolk County Council’s Library and Information Service to test a new way of helping residents access more police services in libraries.

The six month trial will run from the end of September in Thetford and will involve library staff signposting customers to police services, while also helping them complete online self-reporting forms, a function which will soon be available as part of the Constabulary’s new website.


Library staff will also be able to help customers with online enquiries about lost and found items; however members of the public will not be able to take these items to the library.


For the duration of the trial, the current Police Public Enquiry Office (PEO) in Thetford will temporarily close but the overall opening hours are improved by the service provision, with the exception of Wednesdays, where the library currently closes at 1pm.

Members of the public who require an emergency response from Norfolk Constabulary should call 999 or dial 101 for less-urgent crime reporting or to speak to a specific officer or member of staff.

Car stolen following Attleborough burglary

Detectives are appealing for witnesses following a burglary in Attleborough on Thursday 18 August.

It happened in Foxglove Road around lunchtime when suspects broke into a house after forcing a rear window.

The offenders carried out an untidy search and stole a number of items including a 42 inch curved TV, clothes, Nike Air trainers and keys to a black Mercedes C200. The car was subsequently stolen from outside the property.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or noticed anything suspicious in the area.

Anyone with information should contact Det Con James Morgan at Thetford CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
