Police visit migrant workers at Suffolk poultry firms
Police community support officers paid a visit to two north Suffolk poultry firms to foster better relations with migrant workers in the area.
Officers from the Mid Suffolk North Safer Neighbourhood Team and Norfolk Police visited Crown Chicken in Weybread and Gressingham Foods Factory in Redgrave to talk to migrants at the two sites, which has a number of Polish, Lithuanian and Portuguese members of staff.
Information was handed out about the forthcoming census and advice was given on hate crime and how to report it.
Leaflets in a variety languages were also distributed on issues such as driving in the UK, health care, and local police contacts.
PCSO Nicolaas Kegge, who visited the Gressingham Foods Factory, said: 'The visit went extremely well and I thank Norfolk Constabulary for helping us with this event.
