A train headed for Ipswich had been cancelled due to “disruptive passengers”.

Greater Anglia said it had been forced to cancel its 12.47pm service from Cambridge due to the passengers’ behaviour.

One parent, whose daughter was on the train, tweeted: “Great, well done, my 15-year-old daughter will be stuck in the middle of nowhere.”

Greater Anglia has not reported what action has been taken against the disruptive passengers.

However a spokesman said British Transport Police were aware.

The train was due to call at: Newmarket; Kennett; Bury St Edmunds; Thurston; Elmswell; Stowmarket; Needham Market and Ipswich.

Police are at the scene of a two vehicle road traffic collision on the A1065 between Barton Mills and Lakenheath.

Ipswich Citizens Advice revealed the shocking case of the mother, who had depression and anxiety after giving birth, in a bid to call for new laws to crack down on debt collectors who flout the rules.

More street lighting and CCTV cameras are being demanded after an alleged sexual assault in an alleyway - hours after a march against sexual violence.

Suffolk Police are appealing for information after a man was racially abused and then hit by a car on the A12.

Fears have been raised that targeting drug dealing hotspots in Ipswich might simply be moving the problem onto different streets and neighbourhoods.
