More news, no ads


In today's podcast, we have the story of two teenagers who have had their bail renewed for a second time after a 14-year-old boy was stabbed on a Bury St Edmunds estate.

A 17-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man had been due to return to police today after their bail was renewed previously in February, but a police spokesperson confirmed they have been re-bailed until July 28.

On January 29 this year, two boys were chased by two teenagers, one of whom was carrying a knife, in Mount Road on the Moreton Hall estate.

A 14-year-old boy suffered a single stab wound to the shoulder and required hospital treatment.

The teenage pair were later arrested in Newmarket on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.

Meanwhile, times are changing in Bury St Edmunds, as workers have today been seen pulling down the Debenhams store sign in the arc shopping centre.

The shop has been vacant since its closure in May last year.

However, plans have been submitted to build an Everyman Cinema in the basement of the building.

A 14-year-old boy has been released on bail following an allegation of a serious sexual assault in Hadleigh.

Police were alerted to the incident on Saturday evening, which is alleged to have taken place in Calais Street, near the Morrisons Supermarket, between 6pm and 10.30pm on Friday evening.

The 14-year-old was arrested following the report, but he has since been released on bail until May 22.
