Cars used in a film tribute to the 1970s police drama The Sweeney took pride of place in Haverhill’s High Street before it received its national premiere on Saturday (28).

The 30-minute film, The Flying Squad, was premiered at Haverhill Arts Centre and as part of the occasion nine of the cars - all original models of the era - used in the making of the film went on show.

The film features Great Yeldham man Roger Chinery, whose Mark I Ford Granada and Mark II Ford Cortina were both used in it, in the part of Bill the Driver.

“Amazingly 120-odd people came to see it as well, which was fantastic,” said Roger. “We were really pleased and Nick Keeble (Haverhill Town Council arts and leisure manager) did us proud.”
