Melford Road in Sudbury became a river, and there were also reports of surface water on the A14 at Bury St Edmunds.

There has been slow traffic on the A1214 Main Road in Kesgrave around the Doctor Watson’s Lane junction because of flooding.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said they were aware of flooding across the county, but hopefully as the downpours stopped the water would soon start to drain away.

Two people, reportedly including a 14-year-old boy were taken to hospital in separate stabbing incidents last night.

A young woman was left unconscious and needing hospital treatment after being subjected to a “despicable” sexual assault, police have said.

My husband is never referred to as a “working father”, writes Ellen Widdup.

There is nothing work than getting stuck in traffic jams caused by roadworks.

The southbound carriageway of the A11 near Barton Mills is currently closed after a three-vehicle crash.

The last day of February this year will see people across the country indulging in a pancake or two.

My half term week could best be described as a tale of two cinemas, writes Sheena Grant.
