A 75-year-old woman has died after being involved in a crash last week in Felixstowe.

Police were called by the East of England Ambulance Service shortly after 12.10pm on Thursday September 20 to reports that a red Peugeot 207 had collided with a tree in Cliff Road in the Old Felixstowe area of the town.

The woman, who has not been named by police, was taken to Ipswich Hospital by land ambulance, where she later died having received treatment at the scene.

An investigation, carried out by Suffolk police, has concluded that the woman suffered a medical episode prior to the collision with the tree.

A programme to turn around Suffolk’s special education needs (SEN) has been outlined – with an “innovative” pilot set to spearhead the measures.

The Citizens Advice network in Suffolk says it is “dismayed” by council proposals to end its funding support across the county.

Millennials face an ‘impossible task’ buying a first house first home in Ipswich, with the average starter home in the town costing £60,000 more than the national average.

More people have been seriously hurt on Suffolk roads over the last 12 months 
than in each of the five previous years, according to government figures.

A five-year-old boy from Shotley Gate has raised over £1,000 by putting on his running shoes for Children in Need.

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.
