A broken down freight train is the latest problem to affect rail services in the region during a frustrating week for commuters.

Abellio Greater Anglia has reported delays are expected until 5.45pm because of the disruption to the line between Ipswich and Manningtree.

Although the freight train has since over come its problem, some services from London Liverpool Street have been forced to terminate in Manningtree and others have been subject to alterations.

And yesterday overrunning engineering works caused widespread disruption for morning commuters.

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.
