Police will be 'firm, friendly and fair' at Ipswich game next week

Suffolk police say football supporters from both Ipswich and Leeds United can expect a 'firm, friendly and fair' policing operation when the two teams meet at Portman Road on December 6th.

With more than 2,000 Leeds fans expected to make the trip to Suffolk, police are encouraging both sets of fans to arrive early.

Due to the high number of away supporters travelling by coach, access to Portman Road will be restricted and parking spaces will be reduced.

"We will be dealing with fans as they would expect to be treated themselves. Our policing style will be firm, friendly and fair. We have been working closely with our partners during recent weeks, with officers from Suffolk, West Yorkshire and British Transport Police working side-by-side on match day to ensure the smooth running of our policing operation."

– Chief Inspector Paul Bradford, Policing Operations Commander

At one time, the big sales started after Christmas, with shoppers heading out on Boxing Day.

Over the past few years though, the sales have been starting early.

Our retailers have been following the Americans, who traditionally start theirs after 'Thanksgiving'.

The day is known as 'Black Friday' and many shops have as much as 80% off some products.

"I think because of the number of American retailers here in the UK now, it's really taken off here.

This is the first year that all 15 Intu shopping centres have backed Black Friday, and it would appear that the shoppers of Norwich have embraced it too."
