Emergency services are at the scene of a crash in Bury St Edmunds where a car collided with a set of traffic lights.

Police were called at around 7.25am today, Monday, August 6, to the scene at the junction of Orttewell Road and Barton Road.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: “A car has collided with some traffic lights.

“The car is on the junction and has caused a lot of debris.”

He added that staff from the East of England Ambulance were on scene, although there are not believed to be any serious injuries.

He said there is likely to be traffic delays in the area as a result of the crash.

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.

A Colchester woman accused of murdering a rough sleeper, whose badly beaten body was found in a car park, allegedly saw one of her co-defendants bite off the victim’s ear lobe and try to get him to swallow it.

Adriano Guedes, aged 65, of Kessingland, moved to England from Portugal more than 15 years ago and was admitted to hospital in 2014 after having a stroke.

A woman walking her dog along a footpath in Sudbury was confronted by a man who demanded her mobile phone.

Tributes have been paid to the former principal of Chadacre Agricultural College, John Paton Philip MBE, who has died at the age of 92.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.
