Police are encouraging people to speak up if they have been stalked online or out of the region's streets.

A national awareness drive has been launched this week with officers in Bedfordshire, Suffolk and Norfolk all taking part.

Police want to help people spot the signs of stalking and to report it if they have been a victim.

Last year, there were 71 stalking offences commited in Suffolk and 41 in Norfolk.

Figures show 80% of stalking victims are women but campaigners have stressed that many men are also affected.

Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing 80-year-old woman from King’s Lynn.

Margaret Bodger was last seen yesterday evening at about 8.45pm at her home address on Lady Jane Grey Road in King’s Lynn.

She is described as white, around 5ft 7, of medium build, with shoulder length blonde hair and believed to be wearing a mauve coat and purple shoes and carrying a black handbag.

Margaret has links to the Wisbech area and it is also believed she could have travelled to the Peterborough area.

Officers are keen to speak with anyone who may have seen Margaret or knows where she is.

Anyone with information should contact Norfolk Police immediately on 101.
