A policing team targeting serious and organised criminal activity stopped numerous motorists in East Suffolk.

Having launched in the eastern area in October to provide an enhanced coverage of the Suffolk road network, the Operation Sentinel East team have been proactively disrupting "serious and organised criminal activity."

And on a "busy" Thursday, December 5 the team stopped a number of motorists for a series of offences across Lowestoft and the eastern area.

Operation Sentinel initially launched in the south Suffolk earlier this year, but now has dedicated teams in the west and the east of the county.

On Twitter, the Operation Sentinel East team said: "Sentinel East had a busy Thursday.?
