An air ambulance was called to Bury St Edmunds today after a man in his 60s suffered a cardiac arrest.

The East of England Ambulance service were called to the Howard Estate at 9.04am today (Friday) after receiving reports that man was suffering a heart attack.

Two ambulances, an ambulance officer and the air ambulance crew arrived at the scene soon after.

Calls were also made to Suffolk Constabulary for officers to attend the estate at 10.10am.

A ambulance spokesman said in a statement that despite their efforts the man, aged in his 60s, died at the scene.

Two people have been killed in a collision on a road near Newmarket.

Fears have been raised that Suffolk may have a systemic problem with how children’s homes are run after a third establishment was given a poor Ofsted rating in the last 10 weeks.

Jennifer Pearson from Felixstowe claims she had dog mess shoved through her letter box, her tyres slashed, and even had people spit at her – leaving her youngest daughter in tears.

Sixteen people were rescued from rising water after four cars and a bus got stuck in high tide on The Strood crossing at Mersea Island.

A community close to the Essex Suffolk border has been left shocked and saddened following the death of a pedestrian.

The heart of two communities shone through as well-wishers - including an MP - rushed to help people injured in two serious falls.

Suffolk may have enjoyed an almost frost-free winter so far, but the big freeze descended on one town this weekend and so did scores of visitors enticed by the ice.
