A man has been arrested following several incidents at St Michael’s church in Framlingham.

Police have been investigating a number of crimes at the church in Church Street since February.

The incidents include the theft of a handbag from a pew on February 7, a burglary on February 26 where a wooden chest was forced open and a wooden cabinet set alight.

There were further incidents on February 27 and 28 where excrement was smeared on the doorway to the church and items were moved around inside the building.

On Saturday a 21-year-old man from Framlingham was arrested on suspicion of burglary and taken into custody where he was interviewed in connection with these incidents.

He has been bailed to return to police on April 7 to allow further enquiries to be carried out.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pc Jeff Burt at the Saxmundham & Framlingham Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.

Two people, reportedly including a 14-year-old boy were taken to hospital in separate stabbing incidents last night.

A young woman was left unconscious and needing hospital treatment after being subjected to a “despicable” sexual assault, police have said.

My husband is never referred to as a “working father”, writes Ellen Widdup.

There is nothing work than getting stuck in traffic jams caused by roadworks.

The southbound carriageway of the A11 near Barton Mills is currently closed after a three-vehicle crash.

The last day of February this year will see people across the country indulging in a pancake or two.

My half term week could best be described as a tale of two cinemas, writes Sheena Grant.
