The Beast from the East might make a brief return to the region this weekend, according to some forecasters.

While weather conditions will certainly not come close to matching the severity seen earlier this month, a cold blast from the east may bring with it near-freezing temperatures – and perhaps even a scattering of snow.

Dan Holley, a forecaster for Weatherquest, said it will definitely get colder towards the end of the week.

He said: “There is going to be a cold spell. However there is a bit of uncertainty about how quickly that cold wind will come in from the east.

“Once the cold air is in place, we are looking at highs of two or three degrees. There will be quite a noticeable wind chill.”

Regarding the potential for more disruption from snow, Mr Holley said nothing was set in stone.

“It depends how much frost we have before then,” he added.

“We might get some snow showers – but it won’t be anything like what we had before.”

The harrowing consequences of poor driving have been laid bare by a police chief who says he is sick of seeing the carnage it causes.

People are being warned of rail delays after police attended to an incident involving ‘disruptive passengers’ on a Greater Anglia service.

Most Conservative MPs from this region continue to support the Prime Minister in the face of the Brexit storm – but accept that the Parliamentary numbers make it difficult to see how the deal announced on Wednesday can get through.

Firefighters now believe a blaze above a high street shop in Ipswich was started deliberately.

Police have closed an armed robbery case after failing to identify a suspect.

As the country pulls together for Children in Need, one Ipswich business is raising funds by encouraging employees to bring a few cuddly friends to work.

An alcoholic accused of murdering a homeless man whose badly beaten body was found in the stairwell of a Colchester car park has told a court that the victim was still alive when he and his two co-defendants left him.
