A woman who has raised thousands of pounds for charity through selling jam outside her home in Yoxford says jam thieves have struck again.

Margie Saker, 69, contacted the East Anglian Daily Times in October saying she was ‘sick and tired’ of people grabbing a jar and not paying up.

She said since the article was published the problem had stopped, with everyone putting the correct money in the tin on her stall.

But she was furious to discover today that the jam thief had returned, swiping three jars from her stall without paying.

“There is a lady up the road who sells eggs and another has plants for sale,” she said.

“They have said they have had the same thing happen to them.

“After the piece went in the paper I thought ‘oh good, it has worked’.

“How wrong I was.”

Mrs Saker said she suspects the jam thief is an adult, as the thefts have all happened during school time.

The boss of the region’s failing mental health trust has set out areas the organisation will focus on in order to recover.

Survivors of historic child sex abuse will be believed and listened to, a senior Suffolk detective has said as new data shows more people than ever before are coming forward.

A teenager has been left “shaken” after she was sexually assaulted by a man in broad daylight in Ipswich.

Two men wielding what is believed to have been a firearm stormed a restaurant in Essex last night and made off with a two-figure sum of cash.

It was a wonderful, fantastic combination of music which spanned jazz, latin and African influences.

New data has revealed the number of doctors at the region’s mental health trust has shrunk over the last five years - whilst the number of managers has risen.

Police in Ipswich are tackling around 89 violent crimes a week, new data has revealed – equivalent to 12 incidents a day.
