ANOTHER container theft at Felixstowe goods stolen in two years to £1.2m. has brought the total of In the latest raid at the weekend, a 40ft container with £400,000 worth of men's trousers and blazers was taken from a dockland park. Police said they are looking for an abandoned container with the registration mark ZCSU1023166.

Road Haulage Association spokesman Geoffrey Sims said the scale of the thefts was totally unacceptable and a cause for great concern among hauliers.

He said there was a need for a forum to bring together all interested parties — the dock and county police forces, hauliers and insurance firms — to discuss ways of improving security in the port.

Felixstowe Port police chief Pat Henderson advocates the introduction of a lorry park where drivers can leave their vehicles in complete security.
