A woman is due to appear in court charged in connection with the death of a 74-year-old man, who was killed in a road accident in St Osyth.

Kellie Tandy, 36, of St John’s Road, Clacton was arrested at the scene after a car struck a pensioner on Clacton Road, before crashing into a pub.

The collision, which happened on Thursday, May 11, 2017, killed 74-year-old grandfather Ronald Ramsey, who was walking his dog Bobby at the time.

Paying tribute to their beloved relative in the wake of the tragedy, Mr Ramsey’s family said: “As we struggle to understand the devastation we have been left to deal with, we take strength knowing what high regard friends and villagers had for Ronnie, my Dad and brilliant grandad.

“Thank you for all your sincere thoughts.”

Tandy will appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, September 4 where she will be charged with causing death by dangerous driving, failing to provide a specimen, and driving without insurance.

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.
