An Ipswich couple, who were involved with many charities in the town, have marked their diamond wedding anniversary.

Ron and Olga Keveren celebrated with family and friends – 60 years after first tying the knot in Gloucester.

The couple,who have four children and six grandchildren, moved to Ipswich when Mr Keveren became a lecturer at Ipswich Civic, later Suffolk College, where he taught pre-nursing students for over 25 years.

Mr Keveren said his students became a familiar sight at Ipswich Hospital, where they became known as “the pink girls”, due to their bright uniforms. He was also chairman of charities including Age Concern, Crossroads, Sound On and the Foxhall Day Centre. He presents an illustrated talk, entitled I Don’t Believe It at local clubs.

Mrs Keveren worked as a housewife and secretary, including running The Probation Service’s secretaries office.

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.
