Something to keep you busy

With the Bank Holiday here you are probably wondering how you are going to fill it.

There is so much taking place in Suffolk including a cider festival, a tractor fair, a custom car show and more. Make sure you book something up.

Something to shock you

Two roads very close together in Walberswick both had to be evacuated this week after a bomb scare.

It is thought to have been a Second World War motar device - read the full details on the link above.

A busy road near Ipswich is to be closed in an emergency for the best part of a day so that a lamppost can be replaced.

TV naturalist Chris Packham has called on energy bosses to “work harder” to avoid building a massive substation in a “beautiful” Suffolk habitat.

Hundreds of US air force staff from RAF Mildenhall and their families are moving to Gloucestershire as the Suffolk base prepares for closure.

A main road into Ipswich has been ranked in the top 10 ‘riskiest roads’ in the east of England by a road safety charity.

Firefighters have saved a historic thatched cottage tonight after a serious fire started in the chimney of the house.

A drug dealing hotspot is to be targeted with increased police patrols after residents said they were scared to go out.

Plenty of sunshine is on the cards this weekend, but it will be feeling colder with ground frost appearing.
