Suffolk Constabulary are currently in Felixstowe, between the main town and Felixstowe Ferry, after reports of suspected hare coursing activity in the area.

Men with dogs have been spotted in the fields that sit behind the Felixstowe golf course and run along Ferry Road leading up to the hamlet on the River Deben.

A police spokesman said: “If anybody sees males with dogs in fields around that area, please call us on 101 quoting CAD 92 of November 25.”
