Motorists in Suffolk have been warned to prepare for disruption today as police escort an abnormal load through the county.

The girder frame will be escorted at 12pm from the Cookson & Zinn depot on Pond Hall Road in Hadleigh, along Duke Street and on to the A1071 and A1214 before departing at the Essex border on the A12.

It will then continue its journey to its final destination in Swansea.

Suffolk Police warned road users to expect delays along the planned route.

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.

A Colchester woman accused of murdering a rough sleeper, whose badly beaten body was found in a car park, allegedly saw one of her co-defendants bite off the victim’s ear lobe and try to get him to swallow it.

A woman walking her dog along a footpath in Sudbury was confronted by a man who demanded her mobile phone.

Tributes have been paid to the former principal of Chadacre Agricultural College, John Paton Philip MBE, who has died at the age of 92.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.
