Four males arrested on suspicion of burglary after a suspected stolen car crashed near a popular Suffolk pub have been bailed.

Suffolk police officers were called at 3.15pm on Monday to reports of a crash near to the Wild Man pub in Sproughton, near Ipswich.

The occupants of the Seat Leon were reported to have ran off and entered another car nearby, which was stopped soon after in Ulster Avenue, Ipswich.

The vehicle had been reported stolen between 11.45pm on Sunday and 8.50am on Monday. Suspects are thought to have entered a house in Tranmere Gove and stolen a purse and car keys. The white Seat Leon was then driven away.

A 17-year-old boy from Stowmarket, an 18-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man both from Needham Market, and a 25-year-old man and a 17 year-old boy both from Ipswich were all arrested on suspicion of burglary. The 25-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis.

All five were brought to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning. The woman has been released under investigation. The four males have been bailed and are due to return to police on September 18.

Witnesses or anybody with information regarding either incident are asked to call Ipswich CID on 101 quoting reference 37/49028/18. Alternatively, people can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A Colchester man accused of being part of a gang of men armed with stun guns who burst into a flat occupied by two sex workers has admitted using a stolen bank card belonging to one of the women.

With Christmas around the corner, Suffolk has retail temp jobs a plenty - but which jobs in other sectors are getting increasingly tough to fill?

Over the Christmas and New Year period we all struggle to keep a lid on our waste - the food bin groans under the weight of turkey carcasses and our blue recycling bulges with empty boxes from trikes and new games consoles so the last thing you want is to miss your rubbish collection.

Suffolk police seized a higher volume of crack cocaine than any force outside the Met last year, according to new figures.

An Ipswich mother has called for measures to slow drivers at a busy junction after her son almost died in a collision there.

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.
