Officers from Lowestoft had over a dozen roses left on the doorstep of their police station on Wednesday, and they're appealing for the thoughtful stranger to come forward.

Superintendent Paul Sharp said: "We really appreciate the kind gesture. It's a lovely thing to do. We would like to speak to the person that left the roses there, so we can thank them in person."

Gifts have been left at police stations all around the country after PC Andrew Harper died on Thursday, August 15 while responding to a report of a burglary in Berkshire.

At 11am today, officers observed a minute's silence in recognition of PC Andrew Harper.
