Thousands of incorrect council tax letters sent to Mid Suffolk residents

Residents of Mid Suffolk received incorrect council tax bills this week - a total of 5,000 were sent out.

Mid Suffolk District Council sent out 5,000 letter that were incorrect to Needham Market homes. Picture: ARCHANTMid Suffolk District Council sent out 5,000 letter that were incorrect to Needham Market homes. Picture: ARCHANT

As a result, the letters were reprinted and sent back out at a cost of £1,545.

Greater Anglia were planning to remove their cheapest fares at their ticket offices.

This was going to mean that the advance and super-off peak tickets would only be available online, via the Greater Anglia app or via a pay-per-minute phoneline.

However, the company have made a U-turn on their decision meaning customers will be able to continue to buy any ticket in stations across East Anglia.

The two most affordable tickets offered by Greater Anglia were only going to be available by app, phone or online from April 8 Picture: LUCY TAYLORThe two most affordable tickets offered by Greater Anglia were only going to be available by app, phone or online from April 8 Picture: LUCY TAYLOR
