More news, no ads


In today's podcast, we have the news a restaurant owner plagued for years by water repeatedly pouring through the ceiling and flooding his property has spoken of the financial and emotional impact.

Amir Hussain, who has run the Raj Mahal in High Street, Haverhill, for the last 23 years, believes the water is coming through his ceiling from the flats above, owned by a private landlord.

The issue, said Amir, has been going on for five years, with the leaks happening about ‘seven or eight times a year’.

Police said a teenage boy was 'lucky' to walk away with only small cuts after crashing a Peugeot car in Risby.

Bury St Edmunds Police were called at around 7.50pm last night after the teenager came off the road near the West Suffolk Crematorium.

The boy had only passed his test last week and the car belonged to his mother.

A charity-run dental unit is to return to two Suffolk towns to help fill the gap left by an exodus of NHS dentists.

It comes as new NHS data reveals West Suffolk lost 34 NHS dentists between 2020 and the following year, down from 164 to 130. The 21 per cent drop is the third largest in the country.

And in good news, the British Army at Wattisham Flying station has unveiled their state of the art attack helicopters, creating an extra 45 skilled jobs at the Suffolk airbase.

The new arrivals are part of a 2.3 billion dollar deal with Boeing, which is set to support hundreds of jobs across a 20-year period.
