A yellow weather warning for ice remains in place across parts of East Anglia this morning with some longer spells of rain forecast as the day progresses.

The Met Office’s ice warning remains in force until 11am this morning, and forecasters warn there will probably be icy stretches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

Drivers were urged to take care yesterday after a flurry of accidents, including four on the A12 in just two hours.

It looks like a cloudy but largely dry start in the region today, although blustery showers are expected from mid morning, merging to give longer spells of rain at times.

There are currently no school closures reported across Suffolk and Essex after two days of disruption following Sunday’s snowfall.

The region’s mental health trust has pledged to eradicate the use of out of area beds by 2021.

Essex has seen a dramatic rise in possession of weapons offences over the last 12 months - increasing by 50% on the year before, new figures reveal.

An Ipswich resident whose 
street was targeted by car vandals says she has found it hard to sleep through fear they will return.

A Suffolk benefit cheat who was overpaid £28,000 after failing to mention he jointly owned a property with his partner has been given a suspended prison sentence.

The jury in the trial of four men accused of murdering father-of-five Dean Stansby has been hearing how evidence was collected during the investigation.

Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore, and Chief Constable Gareth Wilson are staging a series of public meetings across the county through the coming months – and are encouraging Suffolk residents to attend.

Violent crime rose almost a third in Suffolk last year, according to latest figures.
