Vandals have scratched and damaged at least fourteen cars in a night of crime on a Thetford estate.

Norfolk Police are now looking for witnesses to the incidents after the vehicles were damaged in Rowan Close and Fir Road between late afternoon on Wednesday and early morning Thursday.

Damage included paintwork being scratched by a sharp implement and in one case an obscene word was written, according to a police spokesman.

Anybody with information relating to these crimes is asked to contact the Thetford Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Rail passengers travelling between London to Ipswich this morning are facing delays after ‘trespass incident’ between Colchester and Marks Tey.

The A14 Orwell Bridge will remain open today as Storm Doris looks to have passed - but it was a busy night for the emergency services as they dealt with the aftermath.

This year marks the 47th annual Ipswich to Felixstowe Road run - and as the organisers make their final preparations we look back to a particularly popular run in May 1995.

Pianos collectively worth £50,000 are being given away to schools and community groups.

Storm Doris has caused widespread disruption across Essex.

Nearly 11 hours after it was closed, motorists are now able to use the Orwell Bridge.

Ipswich’s MP has said work must continue to provide the town with alternative routes for diverted Orwell Bridge traffic in the wake of yesterday’s closure.
