On the podcast today, a charity is calling for support following the break in of two of their popular Suffolk shops.

The East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) premises in Lime Kiln Lane, Thetford, and another in Hadleigh High Street were broken into, with £3,000 worth of goods being stolen from the Thetford branch.

A special donation page has been set up for anyone wishing to contribute.

Plans to stop HGV traffic travelling through Stanton village have moved a step closer after councillors agreed on a new link road being built.

Suffolk County Council's cabinet last week agreed to use Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) powers to take ownership of a portion of Grove Lane whose owner is currently a mystery.

Also on the podcast, Home Office data shows Suffolk Constabulary logged 212 crimes of child cruelty in 2020-21 – up from 140 the year before.

Next, the investigation of a suspected assault in Lowestoft's Royal Thoroughfare has been closed after police were satisfied no crime took place.

Enquiries began after a woman in her 20s was reported to have been assaulted by a man between 1.30am and 1.45am on Saturday.

A Suffolk Police spokesperson said they have conducted investigations following the report, and detectives are now satisfied a crime did not take place.

And finally, one of two new shops at a redeveloped former department store in Bury St Edmunds is under offer, with renovation work due to be completed next week.
