SKIES ALIVE WITH POLICE ACTIVITY
A man with an imitation gun, a stolen car and two immigration raids saw police helicopters busy in the skies above Haverhill.
On Tuesday night immigration officials and police with helicopters searched Haverhill Business Park and the town centre.
The next night three helicopters pursued a stolen car and the following afternoon reports of a firearm incident resulted in a police helicopter being sent up.
TESCO FAIL TO HALT PROTESTS
Residents living in the Pightle in Haverhill remained unhappy about the latest updated planning application submitted by Tesco for their new supermarket at Station Yard.
They objected to the size of the store and the road layout.
The biggest issue they had was that although the plans proposed making the Pightle pedestrianised and re-routing traffic behind the street, it would still leave people having to cross the busy road behind the Pightle to reach the store.
Potential traffic problems would still be close to the homes of those in the Pightle.
