We often hear about fatal collisions on our Norfolk Roads - but what's it like for those who have to pick up the pieces?

There have been a series of fatal car crashes across Norfolk in the past few months.

RPU Reedy spends most days on the roads, enforcing the law to try and prevent collisions.

But after fatal crashes, he has to do a much more somber job.

RPU Reedy spent one of his shifts visiting three different families who had lost a loved one in a collision and returning items found at the scene.

In his vlog he said:

"There is so much more to roads policing traffic work than maybe some would ever think.

Some shifts I'm flying around on blue lights trying to catch different people for doing different things. Some days that just isn't possible.

The work load just builds from the serious collisions that we have and it's only right that the families get a good level of service."
