Forestry services firm UPM Tilhill has opened a new branch in Needham Market high street.

UPM group, which is based in the Finnish capital of Helsinki, includes an energy, plywood and paper-making arm.

It employs around 21,000 people worldwide, enjoys annual sales of about 10billion euros, and says it is the UK’s largest forest management and timber harvesting company.

The firm operates throughout East Anglia and specialises in offering services from planting new trees through to harvesting them for timber for customers including estates, farmers, local authorities, the Woodland Trust and the Forestry Commission.

The firm’s district manager Stuart Pearson said: “We are delighted to now have a base in East Anglia which will enable us to offer an even better service to our current customers while helping us to continue building a stronger customer base in the region.”

Arthur Scoffield cried when he watched Saving Private Ryan at the cinema. The horrific realism of war depicted by Steven Spielberg perhaps got the better of the proud old Ipswich soldier.

The mother of missing RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague says she would rather be “waiting for a phone call than not” despite the agony of what news from the landfill site means.

A 25-year-old man who died in a car crash in Long Melford was driving at more than double the speed limit at almost twice the drink drive limit, while on his mobile phone with defective tyres on his car, an inquest has heard.

The manager of an Essex pub that has been banned from holding outdoor music events due to noise complaints has spoken of the “ongoing battle” staff have faced with neighbours and councillors.

An international appeal to help a young west Suffolk girl find a blood stem cell donor – backed by Ed Sheeran and a host of other celebrities – has resulted in a match being found.

A man from Bedfordshire and a man from Chelmsford have been charged by Suffolk police following disorder at the East Anglian derby match on Sunday, October 22.

A former Suffolk Sea Cadet instructor who was given a suspended prison sentence after he had sex with a 15-year-old girl has been locked up for six months after he broke a court order banning him from having unsupervised contact with any other young girls.
