Football loving police officers from Norwich and Great Yarmouth areas are over the moon after they raised £668 for the victims of the Haiti earthquake.

On Tuesday eight sides made up of safer neighbourhood teams took part in a five a side soccer contest at Yo Football at Yarmouth's Harfreys Estate.

The winners of the competition were officers from Norwich's Bowthorpe area, who crushed their Thorpe Hamlet rivals 6-1 in the final.

The other teams involved in the Christian Aid Relief in Haiti event were from safer neighbourhood teams at Caister, Rural Flegg Villages, Cobholm, Southern Villages(Yarmouth), Acle and Gorleston.

PC Steve Potter, based at Caister, had organised the fundraising football fun and he thanked all the officers who took part, including referees Det Con Jim Blake and PC Andrew Symonds, and the staff of Yo Football.
