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.

An appeal has been launched to bring home a much-loved mother who has become stranded in Russia after falling desperately ill on a family holiday.

A 75-year-old woman has died after being involved in a crash last week in Felixstowe.

Essex Police are looking to identify a cyclist who died last week in Great Oakley after suffering a cardiac arrest.

The family of a man who reportedly froze to death outside the home he had been evicted from may finally get some answers nine months on.

More people are born on September 26 than any other day of the year, just nine months and 23 days after Christmas.

Authorities have seized £100,000 of cash found hidden inside packs of bed linen at Harwich International Port.

It was a coastguard callout which had all the hallmarks of a dramatic rescue in the making.
