As East Anglia wakes up to another day of unseasonably warm weather, can we expect temperatures to reach record heights?

It is set to be another pleasant day across Suffolk and north Essex, with temperatures more closely resembling August than mid-October.

Forecasters predict that the mercury will hit 21C in some areas, while a few spots of light rain may pepper western parts of the region.

Storm Callum, which is expected to cause disruption across much of the UK, will merely graze the East of England – with no cause for concern.

While it is set to be cloudy for much of the day, bright spells will develop as time goes on – with conditions feeling humid and warm.

The number to beat in East Anglia is 17.7C recorded at both Cromer and Weybourne on October 3, 2011, while the UK record is 18.4C, set at Aber on Oct 1, 1985.

TV naturalist Chris Packham has called on energy bosses to “work harder” to avoid building a massive substation in a “beautiful” Suffolk habitat.

A busy road near Ipswich is to be closed in an emergency for the best part of a day so that a lamppost can be replaced.

Plenty of sunshine is on the cards this weekend, but it will be feeling colder with ground frost appearing.

A main road into Ipswich has been ranked in the top 10 ‘riskiest roads’ in the east of England by a road safety charity.

A man has been arrested after police intercepted a train and seized a knife hidden in a bag.

If you are a parent of a three or four year old you will have received a letter from Suffolk County Council about school places this week. But what do you do next?

Fashion shows, running market stalls, and sponsored runs are just a few of the things an Ipswich training provider did to raise money for charity.
