More news, no ads


In today's podcast, we have the news a person has died after being hit by a train.

Police officers were called at 3.14pm yesterday afternoon following reports of a casualty on the train line between Stowmarket and Norwich.

British Transport Police confirmed earlier today paramedics were called but the person hit by the train was pronounced dead at the scene.

An online shopping scheme to support local firms has ceased in East Suffolk just months after launching after the online provider admitted it had exhausted all funding avenues to keep it going.

East Suffolk Council committed £60,000 from its share of the Government’s Welcome Back Fund last October on a six-month pilot with the Click It Local scheme.

But activity ceased earlier this month with orders being cancelled and shoppers refunded unfulfilled orders.

Suffolk police are appealing for witnesses after a road rage and public order incident on the A14 near the Orwell Bridge in Ipswich.

And in good news, an historic building in Bury St Edmunds could undergo major renovation works, if planning permission is granted.

A planning application has been submitted to West Suffolk Council to carry out a number of changes at The Deanery, in The Great Churchyard, including an extension of the north wing, the installation of electric car charging points and moving the kitchen.

The building is home to the Very Reverend Joe Hawes, the Dean of St Edmundsbury, and sits nearby to St Edmundsbury Cathedral.

The building has been unoccupied since 2019, but if the most recent planning application is approved, it would see Reverend Hawes move in later this year.
