The University of Suffolk has welcomed its new vice chancellor Professor Helen Langton.

Professor Langton, who was previously deputy vice chancellor at the University of South Wales, takes up the role following the retirement of Richard Lister.

The new vice chancellor has a strong affinity with East Anglia and her family has had a home in Suffolk since 1964. One of her first engagements was to meet with more than 30 headteachers and heads of sixth forms from across Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex at the university’s annual Headteachers Dinner this week .

Professor Langton said: “I am delighted that we are working together in partnership with our schools and colleges to provide an excellent and comprehensive educational offer for all our young people.

“This is critical not only for the individuals, but for our wider social, cultural and economic future.”

Millions of pounds of cutbacks for council services in Suffolk next year have been revealed – with homes facing further council tax rises for the next three years.

Suffolk police are appealing for information after a man exposed himself to a dog walker in Tuddenham.

Two men have been arrested after a 19-year-old man suffered serious injuries following an attack in Sudbury.

The decision on whether to give Stansted Airport the go ahead to raise its passenger numbers by eight million a year has been approved.

A rough sleeper whose badly beaten body was found in a car park was “kicked like a football” by one of the men accused of murdering him, it has been alleged.

Police are appealing for witnesses following the attempted robbery of a man in an electric wheelchair in Barton Mills.

MPs from the region were still waiting to hear about the prime minister’s Brexit deal for most of Wednesday – but the area’s only Labour MP warned there was “zero chance” of it getting Parliamentary support.
