A group of Year 5 and 6 children from Orford CEVA Primary School have qualified for the world finals of a maths and engineering competition.

The competition is called Maths in Motion Challenge for Schools.

The pupils have spent the year learning how to modify and tweak the engine of an F1 car using an online software.

It involves maths which is beyond what they would normally do as part of the curriculum and hundreds of thousands of pupils worldwide take part.

Only 28 schools (14 primary and 14 secondary) from around the world have made it through to the knockout rounds and semi-finals.

The finals are due to take place on 20th June and if the Orford pupils were to qualify it would be the second time they’d have made it this far.

Teacher Gemma Cannon said: “The children have worked really hard all year and we are so proud to see them achieve such an amazing feat.”

The drop-off lane at Stansted Airport is currently closed due to a medical emergency.

Motorists are being warned of delays following a two vehicle collision on a major Suffolk road.

Commuters travelling through Ipswich are being warned of delays after a fault on the London-bound line.

Many high street businesses have struggled in recent years, with major chains such as Woolworths and Toys ‘R’ Us disappearing from town centres since the 2008 financial crash, along with many independent traders.

Temperatures have dropped below 0C for the first time this season, but what does the rest of the week hold for Suffolk and north Essex?

An Indian restaurant in Suffolk has been short-listed for an award honouring the best chefs in the industry.
