Police were called by the ambulance service to the property in Lucas Road, Sudbury at approximately 10.30am this morning with a report that a man had been found deceased inside.

The man has not yet been formally identified, but is believed to be in his 40s.

Blocks of flats at the end of the cul-de-sac have been cordoned off while police carry out their enquiries.

The cordon is likely to remain in place throughout tomorrow.

Resident John McMillan, who has lived in Lucas Road for 18 months, described it as a “very trouble-free area”.

He added: “This is all a normal block of flats, with a complete mixture of people.

“A few years ago it had a very bad reputation, but it’s completely unjustified.”

A post-mortem examination will be carried out on the man tomorrow.

Police activity was focussed on a block of six flats at the far end of Lucas Road, although the cordon extends to a car park behind the block and an area behind the neighbouring, larger block.

Residents were being escorted in and out of their properties by police.

Anyone who has any information in relation to the man’s death is asked to contact the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team on 101, quoting CAD 129 of 14/7/14, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Hundreds of flowers and messages have been placed on the fence around Thurston Community College after a pupil died from a shooting.

Thousands of pounds have been raised in the wake of the tragic death of a 13-year-old Thurston boy, with the Suffolk community rallying together to support the family.

Many of the houses in Cromwell Street, Ipswich were due for demolition when this photograph was taken in the mid 1960s. They were replaced with a dual carriageway road, which came to an abrupt end at St Nicholas Street. There was originally a plan to take the road through to the Fore Street area of the town. Franciscan Way was later joined with Greyfriars Road and the remaining part of Franciscan Way converted into Cromwell Square car park.

Nearly 60 years ago a plan was drawn up for Ipswich to cope with the rise of the motor car by creating a dual carriageway around the town centre.

The A1092 through Clare was closed following the accident.

Ipswich Town Hall.

District councils in Suffolk and north Essex spent more than £20million on redundancy packages over a five-year period, with some departing staff receiving six-figure payouts, an investigation has found.

Mike and Natalie Gee are upset and worried at having to pay £13,000 for the council to make modifications to their home in Ipswich. Natalie has recently become paraplegic after a spinal injury and is in a wheelchair.

“I just want to be a mummy again” – that is the message from an Ipswich woman who was told she would never walk again by doctors.

County Hall, Chelmsford.

An Essex education chief has warned the government to “think carefully” about plans to force all schools to become academies – as figures revealed County Hall could lose more than £1billion in land assets if the proposals go ahead.
