THIS year’s Suffolk Village of the Year has been announced.

Clare High Street

Clare, near Sudbury, has come out tops followed by Moulton, near Newmarket and Wickham Market.

The competition is run by the Suffolk Association of Local Councils (SALC).

Judges were impressed by all this year’s entries but Clare stood out as the winner.

Jane Cole, deputy chief executive officer for SALC, said: “I think it was the sense of community. That came through very strongly and there is a very active parish council.

“All the entries were very impressive and I believe the scoring was extremely close - just a few points between them all.

“The standard of the whole competition was very high. To get into the final three this year was quite a feat in itself. It was very tough.”

Firefighters have attended a “rescue” in Ipswich.

Three residents at an Essex care home suffered smoke inhalation after a fire broke out in a bedroom causing extensive damage to the building.

Firefighters have been called to a blaze in a residential street in Ipswich.

An appeal has been launched to find an Essex man wanted in connection with a failure to appear at court.

The University of Essex is among more than 60 institutions set for strike action next month over pensions – however staff at the University of Suffolk are not expected to take part.

The care received by patients was assessed by an independent panel

A reality TV star was caught reading about horses while driving along a Suffolk road.
