Police in Ipswich have reported a busy morning tackling anti-social behaviour involving an “element of our homeless community” accused of “urinating and defecating in public”.

Suffolk Constabulary’s Ipswich Central Twitter account reported the incident this morning.

It said such behaviour was “totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated”.

The force said it happened in the Princes Street area of Ipswich.

Officers tweeted later to say a number of homeless people in the town centre had been given “suotable advice regardign their general behaviour”.

Last week, in an unrelated incident, a man appeared in court for defecating on the floor of an Ipswich church.

CCTV caught Carl Horth in the act of soiling the floor of Saint Mary at the Elms church.

The 31-year-old had already been recorded stealing an altar cloth from the same church.

A person has died in a fire at a house in the picturesque High Street in Yoxford, near the Suffolk coast.

A young man was stabbed to the back of the head in an attack by three or four men in Harwich.

A man has been fined almost £300 for taking his hands off the wheel to make a two fingered gesture at a speed camera in Suffolk.

Children at a special needs school in Sudbury are already benefitting from a new minibus that was funded through an Italian Job-inspired escapade around Italy.
