More news, no ads


In today's podcast, we have the news that police have launched an appeal to trace five men who were believed to have been involved in a ram raid at a Tesco supermarket this morning.

A JCB forklift was used to remove cash machines from the store in London Road, Brandon, at around 1.30am. The forklift, a black Audi A4 and a white Ford Transit van carrying a total of five men were all involved in the theft.

Meanwhile in Stowmarket, a teenager who was arrested on suspicion of possession of an imitation firearm has been released under investigation.

Police were called to reports of the brawl on Saturday night and the 15-year-old was detained for a search, which revealed he was carrying what appeared to be an imitation firearm.

Today, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesperson has confirmed he has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

We also have the news that a former Bury St Edmunds school which has stood empty for five years is for sale and is being marketed as a potential housing development.

Meanwhile in Haverhill, police are stepping up patrols on an estate to tackle ongoing issues with antisocial behaviour and assaults, while in Newmarket a mum, who was warned her daughter might not survive the injuries she received in a car crash, is aiming to walk 10,000 steps every day next month to raise funds for the air ambulance.
