A scheme to remove cheap super strength alcohol from sale in Suffolk stores has been hailed a success after a fall in reports of street drinking. The voluntary scheme started in Suffolk six months ago and Police say it's led to a near 50% drop in drink-related street crime.

Suffolk Police say they have been contacted by Norfolk and Essex forces about the initiative.
