FIRE crews have tackled an early morning blaze at a flat above a shop in Stowmarket.

The fire service was called to the property in IPswich Street at just before 3am and crews from Stowmarket and Needham Market fire stations were sent to the scene.

They arrived to find the flat well alight but all occupants had been accounted for and everyone was safe.

The fire was brought under control by firefighters using a hose reel and a Multistar aerial ladder platform unit from Bury St Edmunds was called to check for any fire on the roof of the property.

The flames were out by 5am and crews had returned to their bases by 6.12am.

People living along a 183km stretch of Suffolk roads will witness the world’s greatest cyclists race past their doorsteps during Britain’s “premier” road event, which for the first time features a stage hosted entirely within the county.

A series of celebrations marking the achievements of Suffolk’s “most famous daughter” is being held around the centenary of her death.

Three vans, a car and a lorry have crashed on the A120 in north Essex this evening causing police to shut the road.

More than 100 creative computing pupils put their digital skills to the test today at the UK finals of the CoSpace competition in Martlesham.

World-class cyclists will compete in a fast paced race against the clock when a prestigious national event makes its first visit to the north Essex coast later this year.

Witnesses have captured the moment thick black smoke and bright orange flames poured out of a Hedingham bus after it caught fire in Coggeshall this morning.

They lined the streets of a small market town in their hundreds to pay their final, tearful respects to a happy teenager taken too soon, who had touched so many hearts.
