POLICE scrambled their helicopter over Ipswich earlier after items of women’s clothing were found in a town street.

A member of the public found the clothing in Bobbits Lane before raising the alarm with police.

Officers went out on foot patrol before a helicopter was mobilised amid concerns for the person’s safety.

Police - whose air search proved fruitless - are appealing for anyone with information about the incident to call 101.

  • Do we know this clothing belonged to anyone, or maybe it was just a bit of bulk standard fly tipping , which seems to be a regular practice in the area. Do we not have any more better use for the helicopter these days?

  • I have no idea whether the police had more info than is being given here but if not... I saw a half eaten kebab on the path in Norwich Road - could this mean there is someone somewhere lying in an alleyway with some mystery desease stopping them from finishing their meal ?? Better get the ol' helicopter up to investigate......better add a few squad cars.....sniffer dogs??

  • Well you guys obviously do not have a daughterwifemother....if some random clothes were found and they thought that someone may have been attacked and dumped then yes the helicopter should be sent out, if you had a female relative missing and they found clothes somewhere and did nothing and they could have been saved and weren't you soon moan about that!!!!
