SuffolkNews Podcast: Woman detained after multiple police vehicles called to Bury St Edmunds town centre

Also, a mother is facing prosecution over taking her daughter out of school for four days so her family could go on a cheap holiday.

The Bury St Edmunds parent, who asked not to be named, is refusing to pay the fine and is ‘fully prepared’ to go to court over the unauthorised absence for her daughter, a pupil at Howard Community Academy.

The single parent and her six-year-old daughter went on a £99 caravan holiday to Skegness with her parents the week after the Easter break. But two weeks after they returned she had received a fine.

And finally, Omid Djalili returns to the stage in Suffolk – the county he loves and has called home since 2020 – to help support the hundreds of thousands of people displaced by the harrowing earthquakes that struck the border region between Turkey and Syria.

He joins fellow comedians Seann Walsh and Paul Chowdhry, as well as musical artists The Turbans and The Solidarity Ensemble for ‘Suffolk Stands with Turkey and Syria’ at the Ipswich Regent Theatre this Saturday.
