What's believed to be the first swimming pool for dogs has just been opened near Ipswich.

It's at the Suffolk Canine Creche at Martlesham - and is sure to be a popular attraction for the 350 dogs that are brought here every week.

The idea has come from the United States.

Judges praised the campaign, saying it was "sensitively handled" adding the Constabularies communications team were "creative, brave and professional" in the production and delivery of the road safety video.

The video features film captured on the headcam of Norwich motorcyclist David Holmes, killed on the A47 at Honingham in June 2013.

The campaign attracted worldwide attention and has had more than 17.4 million views to date.

"It's an honour to receive this award for David's Story which I believe can only have a positive effect on casualty reduction across Norfolk, Suffolk and beyond. A large amount of this success would not have been possible without the continuing support of Brenda and her family and it was pleasing to have her with us accepting the award last night."

– Chief Inspector Chris Spinks

"This is something I know David would have wanted me to do. I think he would be proud of what we have achieved."

Julian Myerscough

Police searching for a man who disappeared from court whilst he was on trial for downloading child pornography believe he may be in Ireland.

53-year-old Julian Myerscough, who is from the Manchester area but previously resided in Lowestoft, absconded from Ipswich Crown Court on Wednesday 30 September, during a recess while the jury had retired to consider its verdict.

Myerscough was found guilty of all charges in his absence.

Suffolk Police say investigations have led them to believe he is in Ireland. They applied for a European Arrest Warrant to the judge who granted it.

Officers are now working alongside the National Crime Agency and the Garda.
