A SPRINGER spaniel had a lucky escape after becoming stranded on a seafront cliff face.

A team of rescuers had to be called into action to help Buddy, who had found himself in peril on the coast at Walton on the Naze.

The drama unfolded at about 3.15pm on Saturday afternoon and Buddy’s owners asked for the help of the emergency services.

The Walton Coastguard Team and crews form the town’s fire station used special cliff rescue equipment to reach the hound, who had fallen about 10ft onto the cliff face.

He was helped to safety and was unhurt from his ordeal.

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.
