A village primary school in Suffolk is shutting its doors to pupils and staff tomorrow because it does not have any heating.

Bosses at Shotley Primary School say they have no choice but to close on Thursday because the problem will not be fixed in time.

Tomorrow was due to be the first day back at school for pupils.

A statement on the school’s website said: “Please note that the school does not have any heating and this will not be fixed in time for tomorrow’s start back to school.

“Therefore, we have no choice but to close the school for Thursday 4th January.

“We apologise for the short notice, but we have just been advised that we are unable to heat the school using alternative means.

“We anticipate that we will be open on Friday as normal, please check this page tomorrow afternoon for further updates.”

Detectives investigating the disappearance of a 28-year-old man have found a body three years after he vanished – and have vowed to seek answers for his grieving family.

Thousands of motorists were snapped putting their foot down by speed cameras on the A12 in the first four months of 2018, official police figures reveal.

Emergency services have been called to a two-vehicle crash in a small west Suffolk village near Bury St Edmunds this evening.

A former teacher from Suffolk has received a two year suspended sentence after more than 2,000 indecent images of children were found on his laptop and hard drive following a police raid.

Writer Richard Curtis says he would love to call his new film being shot in the region ‘Suffolk Lad’ – but he doesn’t think Americans could pronounce the county’s name.

A man whose body was found in Somerleyton near to where an illegal rave was held has been named as James Cossey.

Suffolk Coastal MP Thérèse Coffey has been temporarily replaced as an environment minister due to illness.
