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.”

A man who died after being found on a bench in Lowestoft town centre was “fit as a fiddle and strong as an ox”, according to friends.

Rail services in Suffolk and Essex have been disrupted after a person was hit by a train.

A Suffolk mother-of-two died while out jogging when a motorist lost control of her car, mounted a grass verge and hit her, it has been alleged.

A double whammy of roadworks close to Lowestoft’s Bascule Bridge lasting a total of 15 weeks will cause “chaos” for drivers and traders in the run-up to Christmas, businesses have warned.

A computer-generated image of a man suspected of indecent exposure in an alleyway has been released by police.

Flowers have been laid at the spot where missing RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague was last seen on this day two years ago.
