More news, no ads


In today's podcast we discuss how senseless’ vandals and thieves who are targeting a Christmas display and grotto, set up to help raise money for a child whose mum has terminal cancer are being warned ‘we can see you and we will find you’.

The warning has been issued by police in Haverhill after numerous upsetting incidents occurred in Queens Square, where businesses have provided a Christmas tree, lighting and a grotto.

The proceeds from the grotto are to be donated to the grandparents of a nine-year-old Haverhill girl whose mum is being helped by St Nicholas Hospice Care because she has terminal cancer.

Two Suffolk care homes have been placed in special measures following a rating of 'inadequate' in a recent inspection.

Concerns were raised over patient safety and leadership following visits to Priory Paddocks in Saxmundham and Highfield House in Halesworth.

Suffolk has seen its busiest year so far for filming TV shows and films, officials from the county's film office have said.

Rachel Aldridge, of Screen Suffolk, said there were more than 220 filming days across the county this year - making it the busiest since the company started in 2016.

And an Ipswich man who has been described as vulnerable has been missing since yesterday, prompting a police search.

Officers are appealing for help from the public to locate Christopher Wallace, who hasn't been seen since yesterday morning.
