More news, no ads


In today's podcast, the body of a woman in her 90s has been found in the River Brett in Hadleigh.

Yesterday at about 4.20pm, members of the public reported that a body had been found in the river.

Police do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances and the death is being treated as unexplained.

Next, a number of arrests have been made by police investigating a group of children.

Three children, aged between 10 and 14, were arrested in connection with offences such as assaults, robbery and harassment in Haverhill.

Haverhill police are now starting work with partners in social care, education and housing to find a long term solution for the issue.

Also, a Lowestoft family has received £6,350 in compensation after Suffolk County Council failed to support their child with special educational needs.

The compensation, along with an apology, was issued after the council did not provide the child with the correct support.

After issuing the apology, the council said it is taking the necessary steps to improve SEND provision.

And finally, a consultation carried out by The Jockey Club has revealed that 83 per cent of residents are backing a cinema project.

More than 300 people visited an exhibition in the Memorial Hall, Newmarket, with a further 2,500 visiting the online version of the consultation.

The concept of a country park at Seven Springs scoring highest, with 86 per cent approving of the idea.

Another idea that received a lot of attention was the cinema project that would see the former Subscription Rooms, which housed the original National Horseracing Museum, turned into a cinema.
