Home secretary Theresa May set to visit Norwich today
Home secretary Theresa May will be in Norwich today to discuss local crime issues.
The cabinet minister will join fellow Conservative Chloe Smith, MP for Norwich North, to learn more about crime in Norfolk.
Miss Smith has been working with Norfolk Constabulary in the last six months, particularly focusing on burglaries, arson and anti-social behaviour problems.
Mrs May, MP for Maidenhead in Berkshire since 1997, helped Miss Smith campaign in Norwich North ahead of her successful by-election campaign to replace the retiring Ian Gibson in 2009.
She also visited the city in March 2011 to speak with police officers about planned government reforms, meeting then Norfolk chief constable Phil Gormley and speaking at a private function for senior female police officers at Dunston Hall.
Read more about the government minister's visit to the city in Saturday's Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News.
