Test your knowledge of comedy legend Sir Ken Dodd in our tribute quiz

The entertainment world is today in mourning for Sir Ken, as fans share memories of his unique career.

The 90-year-old star died at his Liverpool home on Sunday, with his wife Anne, who had been his partner for 40 years, at his bedside.

Sir Ken was famous for his epic stand-up shows, which would frequently last for several hours, and his quickfire humour and great one-liners. He was also known for his trademark “tickling stick” and his comedy pals the Diddymen.

He performed his last show just a few months ago, and had been planning a 2018 tour, until this had to be cancelled due to his illness.

Take part in our quiz to see how much you know about Sir Ken’s career in comedy. Share the quiz with your friends and see how well they do too.

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.
