Watch out - that is the message from police warning drivers in a Norfolk town that they will catch speeding drivers.
Breckland Police conducted speed checks in Thetford on Monday morning with five tickets issued and 10 more drivers being spoken to.
Sergeant Chris Harris was in Brandon Road and Castle Street where tickets were issued to five drivers travelling between 42mph and 47mph in a 30mph speed limit.
As well as the speed checks a driver was stopped due to a defective windscreen.
On Twitter, Breckland Police said: "Watch out for more enforcement in Thetford. PC Harris has been carrying out speed checks in Thetford this morning.
