A man has died after suffering a heart attack at a safari park in Kessingland.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance attended the park near Lowestoft this morning. Captain Neil Waller flew Dr Jenny Townsend and CCP, Ben Caine to the scene where they treated a man in his sixties who had suffered a cardiac arrest.

An EAAA spokesperson said: “Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of all those at the scene, the patient was declared deceased. Our thoughts are with their family and friends at this sad and difficult time.”

Two teenagers wanted in connection with the attempted murder of a 17-year-old in Colchester are still at large following a “targeted” attack.

An investigation into whether ambulance delays caused the deaths of patients in the East of England must be transparent and independent, a union leader has warned.

A couple who run a hedgehog rescue charity from their home near Stowmarket say they released more than 400 of the little animals into the wild just last year.

A man has been arrested in connection with an attempted post office robbery in north Essex.

Suffolk County Council’s element of tax bills this year will see the biggest percentage rise since the notorious 18.5% hike in 2003.

A Suffolk-based charity came together with businesses and individuals in the county to purchase much-needed sensory equipment for a Bury St Edmunds special school.

Warnings issued of the Orwell Bridge’s third closure in as many weeks have prompted renewed calls for a northern bypass to be built.
