Suffolk’s Director of Public Health, Abdul Razaq, is leaving the council at the end of October to move back to the North West of England – prompting a mini-reshuffle of top jobs at the county council.

Mr Razaq said: “As a servant for the public’s health, it has been my immense pleasure and privilege to have worked with you all in Suffolk. Thank you for your support during the last two years and I wish you all the very best in your forthcoming endeavours.”

Nicola Beach, chief executive of Suffolk County Council, said: “I know Abdul has very much enjoyed working and living in Suffolk and is looking forward to the future with positivity and relish.

Dr Amanda Jones will be covering the Director of Public Health role on an interim and part-time basis.

Meanwhile the county is seeking a new executive director of growth, highways and infrastructure on a salary of up to £130,000 a year – filling a role that has been vacant for several months.

A jackknifed lorry has caused major traffic delays on the A14 in west Suffolk this morning.

The 90-year-old man who was found with serious injuries at the Suffolk home where his wife’s lifeless body was discovered, has also died.

Two police officers could face court action relating to the death of former Ipswich Town striker Dalian Atkinson.

Suffolk County Council has vowed to tackle period poverty – but fell short of committing cash to the cause.

A former Bury St Edmunds man accused of sexually assaulting three schoolgirls more than two decades ago has been cleared by a jury.

Crimes including theft and weapons possession have risen more sharply in Suffolk and Essex than on average across the rest of the country.

An inquest has been opened and adjourned into the death of a 22-year-old high risk missing person from Hartest.
