Police are investigating an attempted break-in at an Essex primary school.

They want to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious activity around All Saints Church of England Primary School in Great Oakley last Monday evening.

Thieves are believed to have tried to get into the school in Beaumont Road some time between 5pm on April 21 and 7.30am the following day.

A window in a side door was smashed but no entry was gained and nothing is believed to have been taken.

PC Steve Baldwin said: “Although they did not get in, the cost of the damage is estimated at £500 and I would very much like to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious activity on the school grounds or nearby between the relevant times.”

Anyone with information can call PC Baldwin at Harwich Police Station on 101 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A fugitive’s battle to evade justice despite already spending two years behind bars in Ireland has been described as “farcical” by a Suffolk MP.

A man aged in his 80s has become the 20th person to be killed on Suffolk’s roads this year following an accident on the A11 at Barton Mills on Saturday.

Parts of Colchester town centre were sealed off on Friday after a van caught fire in the middle of a street.

A former Ipswich man has appeared in court charged with possessing a double-barrelled shotgun and two stun guns.

Colchester MP Will Quince has declared the development of an army training ground for 1,000 homes unwelcome and unnecessary, despite their inclusion in a blueprint for future growth.

The family of missing man Corrie McKeague believe a criminal investigation should take place if he is not found by police searching landfill for the RAF gunner.
