As the sun comes out and more of us head to the river for a day, night or even a whole week of boat­ing, Nor­folk Po­lice’s Broads Beat team will be on the water to en­sure ev­ery­one is safe, se­cure and able to en­joy the vast net­works of wa­ter­ways.

With pa­trols in their Orkney Pilot 20 boat get­ting into full swing, we asked Broads Beat of­fi­cer PC Paul Bassham to share his seven cul­tural picks

which keep him smil­ing on the water and off it.

The team has a num­ber of roles on the Nor­folk Broads, from giv­ing water safety ad­vice to those hir­ing boats, pre­vent­ing anti-so­cial be­hav­iour and deal­ing with crimes, to tak­ing part in searches for miss­ing peo­ple, po­ten­tial drown­ings and help­ing save lives on the water.
