Thieves smashed their way into a sports and social club in Trimley St Martin on Tuesday stealing bottles of alcohol and soft drinks.

The break-in happened at around 11.30pm on Tuesday, October 7 at a premises in High Road, causing thousands of pounds of damage.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: “Entry was gained by smashing the glass in a rear door and once inside the offenders forced open the bar shutters, stealing a number of bottles of alcoholic and soft drinks.”

Police were called and arrived at the scene shortly afterwards but the thieves had fled the scene.

Officers are appealing for witnesses following the burglary.

Police say there were at least three suspects using a small dark-coloured vehicle which made-off in the direction of the roundabout junction with Howlett Way.

Significant damage has been caused to the building, which is estimated to cost several thousand pounds to repair.

Any witnesses, or anyone with information about this crime, are asked to contact the Neighbourhood Response Team at Rhodes House on 101 quoting reference 57911/18, or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A Colchester man accused of being part of a gang of men armed with stun guns who burst into a flat occupied by two sex workers has admitted using a stolen bank card belonging to one of the women.

With Christmas around the corner, Suffolk has retail temp jobs a plenty - but which jobs in other sectors are getting increasingly tough to fill?

Over the Christmas and New Year period we all struggle to keep a lid on our waste - the food bin groans under the weight of turkey carcasses and our blue recycling bulges with empty boxes from trikes and new games consoles so the last thing you want is to miss your rubbish collection.

Suffolk police seized a higher volume of crack cocaine than any force outside the Met last year, according to new figures.

An Ipswich mother has called for measures to slow drivers at a busy junction after her son almost died in a collision there.

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.
