A man was arrested at Ipswich rail station this afternoon after he became aggressive and had to be restrained.

Suffolk police were called to the scene just before 4pm to deal with the male who was detained by officers on the train which was due to leave for Lowestoft.

A spokesman said the incident took place in the toilet of the train which was stationary on Platform 1.

It led to Greater Anglia having to cancel the 4.17pm service and also had a knock on effect as the 6.07pm from the Suffolk resort was started at Beccles.

A spokesperson for the rail company said the correct schedule would then come into place.

A Colchester man accused of being part of a gang of men armed with stun guns who burst into a flat occupied by two sex workers has admitted using a stolen bank card belonging to one of the women.

With Christmas around the corner, Suffolk has retail temp jobs a plenty - but which jobs in other sectors are getting increasingly tough to fill?

Over the Christmas and New Year period we all struggle to keep a lid on our waste - the food bin groans under the weight of turkey carcasses and our blue recycling bulges with empty boxes from trikes and new games consoles so the last thing you want is to miss your rubbish collection.

Suffolk police seized a higher volume of crack cocaine than any force outside the Met last year, according to new figures.

An Ipswich mother has called for measures to slow drivers at a busy junction after her son almost died in a collision there.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
