More news, no ads


In the podcast, we have the news a group has organised a protest to be held in Lowestoft calling for the resignation of Boris Johnson over the latest party scandal.

The 'Boot out Boris Johnson' demonstration will be held outside the Britten Centre from 1.30pm tomorrow, following the Prime Minister's admission that he attended a garden party at Downing Street while the country was in lockdown in May 2020.

There's also some sad news as one of the last surviving D-Day heroes has died aged 101.

Known as ‘Gentleman Jim’, World war two veteran James William Palfrey, who landed at Normandy in one of the largest military operations ever on June the sixth 1944, died at his home in Bury St Edmunds on New Year’s Day.

His son Malcolm said he was a ‘real gentleman’ and a ‘lovely bloke’.

Elsewhere, and major safety improvements are set to be brought in for two racehorse road crossings in Newmarket.

They’ve been described as very dangerous for riders, drivers and pedestrians and now the crossings in St Mary’s Square and Bury Road have been singled out for safety measures.

And there's a yellow weather warning for fog across Suffolk, with the Met Office advising drivers to be careful on the roads as there may be hazardous conditions.
