There has been a 26% rise in the number of children and young people hospitalised after self-harming in the East of England.
Speeding Drivers Targeted
More Police will be on the Norfolk and Suffolk roads during a week long campaign to target speeding drivers.
The campaign, led by TISPOL, the European Traffic Police Network, will run between Monday 18 and Sunday 24 April and will see more speeding checks and enforcement across Norfolk and Suffolk.
Drivers caught speeding will face a £60 fixed penalty notice and three points on their licence. Some offences could see drivers taken to court where they may face larger fines and even a ban from driving.
Excessive speeding is one of the ‘Fatal Four’ driving offences alongside drink driving, using a mobile phone and not wearing a seatbelt.
Chief Inspector Adrian Dawson, Head of Roads Policing in Suffolk told Heart:
"Tackling speeding is a priority throughout the year because excessive speed is so dangerous and is a contributing factor in a large amount of road traffic collisions. We want drivers to take note of the very simple message of ‘slow down, speed kills’. By sticking to the legal speed limits unnecessary injuries and deaths can be prevented."
Police have confirmed that a man and a teenage boy have died after an incident at West Meadows in Ipswich yesterday afternoon.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year, an all-time record.
The survivor of a serious crash in Norfolk has become the face of the Norfolk PCC's new awareness campaign.
