Army bomb disposal experts were called from Colchester today after reports of a wartime shell being discovered on Lowestoft beach.

A metal detector enthusiast raised the alarm at 11.45am after discovering a 6in metal object in the sand near Links Road.

Police cordoned off an area of the beach, but experts quickly ruled out the object being a wartime armament and the object was handed to the finder as a souvenir.

A Suffolk MP has demanded the Government pledge emergency cash to solve an ambulance crisis which whistleblowers claim has killed scores across the region.

More than 14,000 motorists were caught speeding through Suffolk’s two sections of average speed cameras in 2017, it has been confirmed.

Rail services in the region are subjected to delays after a person was hit by a train in Essex.

A driver whose car was found in a watery ditch in Suffolk remains unaccounted for – despite police searches involving a helicopter and dog units.

Police investigating reports a man was robbed in Clacton believe his attackers assaulted and stole cash from him in an alleyway.

Police hit the streets to remind motorists that using a mobile phone while driving can be deadly.

These are the first photos of the completed new flagship branch for Ipswich Building Society.
