A 14-year-old girl has been assaulted as she was out walking in Stowmarket.

She was on Pikes Meadow, on Ipswich Road, at about 6.30pm on Sunday, May 6, when an unknown male aged 20 to 30 years old walked past and grabbed her shoulder.

The teenage girl kicked the male in the shin before running away from area.

The suspect is described as having a bald head, was wearing a black T-shirt, black jeans and black trainers and was described as having a muscular appearance and two piercings to the right ear.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has knowledge of it should contact Stowmarket police on 101, quoting crime reference 37/24640/18 or call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

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.
