Singer Gilbert O’Sullivan has cancelled his performance tonight at the Ipswich Corn Exchange.

Ticket holders were informed on Friday. They were told the Irish singer – known for his early 1970s hits Alone Again, Clair, and Get Down – will come to Ipswich in September instead.

Doctors told Gilbert he is suffering from a chest infection and is therefore not well enough to perform.

Original tickets will remain valid for the new show, scheduled for September 10 at the Regent.

Those unable to make the new date will be given refunds.

Gilbert told fans last night: “I had hoped to be well enough to perform in Ipswich tomorrow, but due to a lingering chest infection and cough, my doctor has advised me to stay in bed.

“Once again, I’m sorry to let you down, postponing shows is something I always try and avoid as I know the inconvenience it causes you all.”

An A&E department in Suffolk had to close to ambulances for a temporary period because patient safety was at risk, it has been revealed.

Cash was stolen after an aggravated burglary in Brettenham where a liquid substance was thrown into a victim’s face.

A number of roads and rail lines remain closed in the aftermath of Storm David - here is a rundown of where to avoid on your trip home.

With various names having been ascribed to the gales that plagued Suffolk yesterday morning, there was some confusion as to what the storm was actually called.

The idea was simple: if every woman who had ever been sexually assaulted or harassed posted ‘me too’ online, we might get a sense of the true scale of the problem.

Trees were torn down, roofs were ripped from houses in Essex this morning as fierce winds battered the county sparking traffic chaos.

East Anglia’s rail services faced a day of chaos as the morning storm brought trees down across several routes.
