In today's podcast, we have the story of a huge blaze in Martlesham which firefighters spent hours tackling overnight.

Twenty-three crews from across Suffolk were called to Sandy Lane at 1am this morning after a fire broke out in an industrial unit.

The fire spread to a number of other nearby units, before crews brought the fire under control shortly before 5am.

However, crews have remained on site today to ensure the site is safe.

Meanwhile, Eastenders actress Jessie Wallace was arrested outside of a Bury St Edmunds nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Wallace, who plays Kat Slater in the soap, was arrested for on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and drunk and disorderly behaviour.

According to national media reports, the 50-year-old was released without charge after receiving a conditional caution.

A developer of a block of flats in Bury St Edmunds has launched to the defence of his controversial scheme.

The Lantern, in Tayfen Road, has come under heavy criticism recently, with some people labelling the building an 'eyesore'.

However, Belal Rouf, the developer, has defended the £15 million scheme, saying residents 'love' the building.
