Suffolk police have re-appealed for witnesses to two rural burglaries in Elmswell and Norton.

The first happened between 11.30am and 3.15pm on Thursday, August 2, at a house in Ixworth Road, Norton.

According to a police spokesman, an offender forced entry through some French doors before searching the house and stealing jewellery and watches.

The second burglary happened between 3.30pm and 3.45pm on the same day at a house in Church Road, Elmswell.

“An offender smashed glass in a rear patio door, made an untidy search and stole cash from within,” a police spokesman said.

Police previously released a CCTV image of a man they wished to speak to in connection with two rural burglaries but he has since been identified, interviewed and eliminated from their enquiries.

Police would still like to hear from anyone with dash-cam footage captured in Ixworth Road near to the Norton Dog pub between 11.30am and 3.15pm that day.

Anyone who has any information or dash-cam footage is asked to call Bury St Edmunds CID on 101, quoting reference 43556/18 for the Ixworth burglary and reference 43627/18 for the Norton burglary.

Alternatively, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or via their anonymous online form at

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.
