ABOUT 200 people visited a stall on Watton market run by police on Saturday.

Officers from the local Safer Neighbourhood Team manned the bill barrow to offer crime prevention advice, security mark valuables and listen to people's concerns.

Watton-based Sgt Lance Ogbourne said: “Once again The Bill Barrow was a huge success with approximately 200 people visiting the stall. Some were just stopping for a chat but it was really nice to hear several people say that they were just pleased to see us. Others were interested in the crime prevention items we were selling and some had policing issues to discuss. I'm looking forward to next month's market.”
