The abnormal load will start its journey at 9am today from Fairline Boats in Oundle, Cambridgeshire.

Suffolk police will start their escort on the A14 at the Cambridgeshire border before taking the A1303, A1304 and B1506.

The load will rejoin the A14 before taking the A1308 and the B113 at Needham Market.

Roads in Great Blakenham will then be taken, before the convoy moves onto Lorraine Way, Bramford Way and Sproughton.

It will then take the A1071, A1214 and finally the A137 into Ipswich.

The load will then travel along West End Road, Bridge Street and finally onto the Haven Marina at Key Street.

Police have said that delays can be expected along each of these routes.

Two people have been killed in a collision on a road near Newmarket.

Fears have been raised that Suffolk may have a systemic problem with how children’s homes are run after a third establishment was given a poor Ofsted rating in the last 10 weeks.

Sixteen people were rescued from rising water after four cars and a bus got stuck in high tide on The Strood crossing at Mersea Island.

A community close to the Essex Suffolk border has been left shocked and saddened following the death of a pedestrian.

The heart of two communities shone through as well-wishers - including an MP - rushed to help people injured in two serious falls.

Suffolk may have enjoyed an almost frost-free winter so far, but the big freeze descended on one town this weekend and so did scores of visitors enticed by the ice.
