Police are today hunting a man following an attempted armed robbery at a shop in Ipswich.

The man, armed with a knife, entered the store in Bramford Road and demanded cash from the till after asking a male staff member for some tobacco.

The threat was made while the shop worker had his back turned.

No money was handed over and the man fled the store empty-handed.

The man is described as white, around 5ft 9ins tall, in his mid to late 20s, of medium/heavy build, with facial stubble and short dark hair.

Call police on 101 with information.

Safety failings uncovered by health inspectors at an Essex care home put residents at risk of being trapped inside if the building caught fire, a new report warns.

An investigation is underway into suspected arson after a thatched outdoor classroom in Christchurch Park was burned to the ground.

Police are appealing for help in tracing a missing 25 year-old male from Ipswich, who has not been seen for a week.

There are just a few days left to have your say over Braintree District Council’s draft Local Plan.

Two Suffolk nurseries have defended their decision to put the price of hot meals up to £12 a day in the wake of national funding changes being rolled out later this year.

The popular ITFC family day out will return on Thursday, July 27, at Portman Road.
