More news, no ads


In today's podcast we have the news that a mother whose son died after falling from a second floor window of a Newmarket pub has said what happened to him could’ve been prevented.

Tina Bedford was speaking after the inquest into the death of her 24-year-old son Callum Mckeon, which a coroner said had been contributed to by him being able to get into a part of the Golden Lion pub not normally accessible to customers.

She said she hoped lessons would be learned so no other family would have to go through what they had.

Next, the family of a man who died in a motorbike crash in Brent Eleigh have described him as a ‘loving’ and ‘hardworking’ man.

Darren Russell, 52, of Sudbury, died following a crash on the A1141, between Brent Eleigh and Monks Eleigh, on Sunday.

Meanwhile, worried residents are hoping to form an action group to clean up what they have dubbed: the forgotten estate.

On Monday, around a dozen residents met at Bridge Community Church, in Queen’s Road, to discuss problems at the Priors Estate, in Bury St Edmunds.

In other news, firefighters spent almost three hours tackling a fire at a commercial building in Haverhill overnight.

Nine crews from across Suffolk, including two from as far as Holbrook, were alerted to the blaze, in Piperell Way, at 1.33am.

And finally, a vehicle camera pilot scheme to target criminals entering and leaving the Sudbury area has been formally requested by councillors, as police confirmed tackling county lines remains a top priority.
