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.
