Shotley beach has recently become a hotspot for beach combers, some of whom have unearthed some astonishing finds.
Among the most interesting artefacts to be found in recent times was a wonderfully preserved jaw bone, complete with teeth, on the beach in 2015.
The bone was shown to be more than a century old by the Suffolk Archeological Service. Read the full story on the link above.
Residents of Mid Suffolk received incorrect council tax bills this week - a total of 5,000 were sent out.
The error means that the 12.7% increase to council tax made by police and crime commissioner, Tim Passmore, was missed off the breakdown of payments - despite being included in the overall fee.
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.
