Up first, a musician is looking to organise his biggest concert to date, after taking up music full-time in the wake of his father’s death.

Adam Philpott, whose stage name is Adam Thomas, said he hit 'rock bottom' when his father, Mark Philpott, died in 2017.

But the artist from Ufford, near Woodbridge, has decided to follow his passion of music full-time, after taking a year out to work on his physical and mental health.

Since then, he has played many concerts across the country, but now plans to get his own music out there and organise an Ipswich concert in September. The venue has not yet been decided.

Next, a 12-year-old girl from Ipswich has been reported missing.

Sasha Reid was reported missing from the Pinewood area around 10pm yesterday.

She is described as mixed-race, about 5ft 3ins tall and of slim build.

She has dark hair cut into a bob, bleached on the right side and slicked back into a bun.

Suffolk Police are concerned for Sasha and anyone with information about her whereabouts should call them on 101 quoting CAD 428 of May 3.

Also, emergency services were called to the B1115 at Monks Eleigh earlier today after a crash.

The fire service was called just after 7am this morning to assist police and ambulance crew remove a man from a vehicle following a collision.

A spokesperson for the East of England Ambulance service said crews treated a man before taking him to West Suffolk Hospital.

And finally, trainees at West Stow's Fullers Mill Garden, near Bury St Edmunds, are helping to create a show garden for RHS Chelsea Flower Show later this month.

Work began on Tuesday to build the main avenue garden. Trainees Gary Bean and Jason Gotts are set to join more than 50 others spending 18 days to transform the 22m by 10m space into a garden.

Across May 17th and 18th, Gary from Mildenhall and Jason from Norwich will be busy at Chelsea planting the garden.
