Dozens ended up wet and muddy on an obstacle course in the Suffolk countryside.

The Insane Terrain event at Poplar Park, Hollesley, saw people take part in a 5km or 10km obstacle course.

Among participants were brothers Rob and Martin Cornwell, and friend Andy O’Donnell – all wearing giant nappies and raising money for the neo-natal unit at Ipswich Hospital as a thank you for saving the life of Martin’s baby boy Charlie.

Martin, of Felixstowe, said: “It was quite mucky – we were covered from head to toe!”

Martin’s wife Kerry was 29 weeks pregnant when she gave birth to Charlie on May 1 last year. He was just 2lb and 15oz.

After 50 days in hospital, Charlie pulled through and is now in full health.

The team have done the eight-mile Gladi8tor at Thetford Forest, and in July will be on a 10k run at Jimmy’s Farm. People can donate at justgiving.com/Rob-cornwell.

One of the biggest dates in Felixstowe’s summer calendar of events got off to a sun drenched start on the seaside this afternoon.

Emergency services are at the scene of a serious collision on the A11 at Barton Mills.

It’s the start of the school summer holidays, six weeks that are a time of both joy and pain for parents across the nation, Sheena Grant writes.

A baby born with a rare disease that causes such severe muscle weakness that even breathing, eating and swallowing become difficult for her has received support from a Suffolk charity.

Families in Ipswich needn’t have ventured far to hit the beach as a sandy retreat began its summer-long stint in Christchurch Park.

Thousands of people have headed to Jimmy’s Farm in Wherstead today for the first day of one of the biggest events on its calendar: Jimmy’s Festival.

A man accused of brandishing a fake gun in Ipswich has been detained to appear at crown court next month.
