In today's Suffolk News Podcast, we have the story of a teenage boy who has been sentenced to 24 years behind bars.

Jacob Talbot-Lummis, 16, who can be named for the first time today, shot his friend in Kesgrave, after he laid in wait for about an hour on September 7 last year.

Talbot-Lummis was found guilty of attempted in murder in June following a trial at Ipswich Crown Court.

"The sentence handed down by the court today reflects the severity of the crime which was committed and I can only hope that by this legal process coming to an end, the victim and his family can now begin to focus on the future and rebuilding their lives," said Detective Superintendent David Henderson, the senior investigating officer.

Ipswich Town Under-23s manager Kieron Dyer is waiting to hear when he will need to undergo a liver transplant to treat primary sclerosing cholangitis.

Dyer had been undergoing tests in hospital last week.

It has been confirmed that he has been suffering from the rare chronic liver disease for the past two years.

Dyer said to the club website: “Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with a condition of the liver a couple of years ago, that would lead to me one day needing a transplant.

“Over the next week, test results will confirm when I need to go through this procedure.

“I see myself as a very positive person that will overcome this minor setback."
