South Norfolk Police have been taking the horse units across the district, most recently in Long Stratton.

A police spokesman said: “Over the last few weeks special Sgt Jason Crisp and special Sgt Hannah Holmes have been organising patrols for areas across South Norfolk to provide reassurance with the horse unit.

“The team have also been involved in delivering sunflower seeds to homes where sunflowers are displayed in the window, in support of the emergency services.

“So far they have covered Poringland, Framingham Earl, Wymondham, Mulbarton, Whitlingham Lakes and this weekend Long Stratton.
