Police hunt sex attacker

Police in Lowestoft are appealing for witnesses after reports that a 21-year-old woman was sexually assaulted in the town. The attack's said to have happened in a field off Britten Road in the early hours of Saturday while the victim was making her way home after a night out.

An area around the field has been cordoned off. The man is described as white, of medium build and in his mid 20s. He had short shaven hair and wore a tracksuit.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen a lone woman walking in the area of The Avenue, Tom Crisp Way, Britten Road, Britten Field and Delius Close in Lowestoft between 2am and 3.30am on Saturday 2 February.

8300 knives handed in

Over 8300 knives have been deposited in Suffolk’s knife bins since the “Bin a Blade” amnesty began.

An initial year-long amnesty saw 6125 knives left anonymously in six amnesty bins in 2011. The bins are still at Ipswich, Lowestoft, Bury St Edmunds and Mildenhall Police Stations.

8330 knives handed in is an amazing number, and the bins remain in place for anyone who wants to bin a blade. Whilst there is not a significant problem with knife crime in Suffolk, our amnesty is continuing to make people think about the consequences of carrying a knife and offering a way to dispose of them without prejudice.”
