The Thames Coastguard was called after reports of a capsized canoe in Felixstowe yesterday.

The coastguard received the call at 4.31pm with reports of the canoe, a paddle and fishing rod seen at Cobbalds Point.

Felixstowe Coastguard Rescue Team and Harwich RNLI Inshore Lifeboat were tasked but were stood down when, coincidentally, a person called reporting the loss of these items earlier in the day.

Police are appealing for help in tracing a missing 25 year-old male from Ipswich, who has not been seen for a week.

Police have halted filling in the landfill cell where they believe the body of missing RAF man Corrie McKeague is located.

A lorry which overturned at the junction 19 A12 Boreham Interchange, Chelmsford, has been righted by police.

Firefighters have returned to scene of a straw fire, which has re-ignited just outside a village near Stowmarket.

Police are investigating a spate of break-ins at allotments in Ipswich.

A couple from Clacton who failed to safeguard more than £40,000 worth of tenants’ deposits as part of their lettings agency business have narrowly avoided prison.

A man who capsized off the coast of Felixstowe owes his life to his life jacket, quick thinking witnesses and the efforts of coastguard and the RNLI.
