They might not carry messages as owls do in the famous novels - but visitors can still marvel at the most stunning feathered creatures during a sanctuary’s special Harry Potter day.

Fritton Owl Sanctuary, near Lowestoft, is holding the open day on Saturday, August 25 from 10am.

There will be magically-themed music and food at the event, where people are being encouraged to dress up in costume as their favourite characters.

Fritton Owl Sanctuary was set up in 2013 with the aim to give a home to as many unwanted capitive bred owls as possible.

It also takes in injured wild native owls and rehabilitates them, so they can be released back into the wild.

The sanctuary says it has managed to release a satisfactory number of owls into the wild during its five years of opening and and currently homes more than 20 owls in the sanctuary for lots of different reasons.

“We feel we have made an impact by saving these beautiful birds and we look forward for the coming years,” the sanctuary says on its website.

Motorists are being warned of severe delays following a crash and car fire on the A12.

A pub landlord who smashed a pint glass over a customer was put behind bars this week. Take a look at the others here.

Hundreds of US air force staff from RAF Mildenhall and their families are moving to Gloucestershire as the Suffolk base prepares for closure.

A learner motorcyclist had their bike seized after police found they had allegedly been riding with no rear brake pads.

Members of the public crowded round to help after a man’s foot was struck by a car in Ipswich town centre.

Further searches are being carried out today to help find missing Matthew Strasbaugh, 18, from Lakenheath.

A busy road near Ipswich is to be closed in an emergency for the best part of a day so that a lamppost can be replaced.
