A cyclist who died at the scene of a crash near Sudbury last week has been named by police.

Brian Riley, 65, from the Sudbury area, was killed following a collision with a lorry around 10.10am on Friday, October 19.

The incident happened on the A134 – between the roundabout junction with the B1064/A131 and Mills Lane.

A stretch of the A134 was closed by police for nearly seven hours while an investigation took place.

Diversions were put in place from the roundabout with the B1064/A131.

Sue Ayres, Sudbury mayor, said she was saddened by the news.

“I didn’t know the gentleman but it’s so desperately sad,” she said.

“When something like this happens, it affects a lot of people, not just the people involved and their loved ones, but the people who saw it.

“I’m dreadfully sorry to hear the news.”

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.
