    • Profile photo of Mart Poor Driving Standards by Police in Ipswich by Mart.

      Is it any wonder driving standards in the UK are so bad, and I believe around these parts they are particularly bad. So last night, early eve, still daylight, I pulled up behind a police car at a set of traffic lights. This set of lights has a stop line set well back, and a cycle reserve area in front of that. The police car had stopped right across the cycle area and I think was then slightly in advance of the cycle stop line. Clearly not how y…

    • Profile photo of Dan 1244 serious Sexual Offences in Suffolk by Dan.

      A 40% rise in reported serious sexual offences to Suffolk Constabulary since the previous year. Last month in March 2017, 163 sexual offences were reported in the county. Absolutely shocking. Without a doubt Ipswich makes up a big chunk of such figures but specifics haven’t been released upon area. Sexual offences and domestic abuse crimes in Suffolk rise by up to 40% in a year Tim Passmore, Suffolk’s police and crime commissioner, said…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ipswich Professional Drivers by Ipswi.

      One of my growing pet hates bugbears in recent times is poor standards of driving. Primarily as witnessed by professional drivers. Lorries overtaking on the A14 can be annoying but this topic is to focus on taxi drivers and bus drivers (from my perspectives anyhow). Professional Drivers The below is my experiences to share but feel free to add any incidents of poor standards by taxi drivers, bus drivers, driving instructors and lorry drivers. Pe…

    • Profile photo of Dan New town centre scammers? by Dan.

      I witnessed a group of people on the corner of Westgate Street outside what was Sportizus opposite Ann Summers. A woman (the ring-leader) with a white cap on with some small flags across the middle. They had bundles of “leaflets”… some were copied £20 notes (not a poor quality photocopy), she also had other leaflets which looked like a small booklet – the kind you would have from a building society or credit union. Not a…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ipswich Council Tax refund scam by Ipswi.

      Council Tax scam Residents are advised to be on their guard after a number of reports of fraudsters contacting Suffolk residents by phone, text or email about their council tax. One Ipswich resident has reported receiving an email from ‘Online Council TAX UK’ which claimed they were owed a refund, and requesting they provide their bank details via an online form. The email quotes a ‘council.tax.gov.uk’ email address. This is not a legiti…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ipswich the countrys most violent town? by Ipswi.

      Almost 4 years since councillor David Ellesmere and Police and Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore tried to defend Ipswich’s poor violent crime record being highlighted in the UK Peace Index, a study by the Institute for Economics and Peace. Ipswich made it to number 23 on the list. Excluding cities (including London boroughs treated individually) it is the most violent town. No other towns beat Ipswich in respect to violent crime. Ipswich r…

    • Profile photo of NorfolkSuffolk Norfolk Police by NorfolkSuffolk.

      Has anyone viewed the YouTube videos demonstrating the poor style of policing from Norfolk? I have sadly observed many instances of police abuse of power. The Norfolk & Suffolk Police merger is bad for Suffolk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUO2oNz5m3I Someone filming out and about with his kid near a police station. An officer (inspector?), clearly not a constable, pounces on him. He wouldn’t confirm if the man was committing a crim…

    • Profile photo of Dan Suffolk Judge highlights concerns in justice system motoring offences by Dan.

      Does anyone fear the law anymore? Is this why there is so much crime about these days? The custodial sentence was essentially bypassed by the judge becoming “impressed” by the defendants CV. It appears the criminal wasn’t a millionaire or politician. Now, cannot criticise the judge too much but how are judges able to be so flexible in sentencing… The judge clearly felt one last chance was needed to give the drug taker an …

Just weeks from other incidents of violent stabbings all across Ipswich. This is something we should be very concerned…
