Former Norwich City defender Sebastien Bassong is in danger of losing his driving licence after an Ipswich magistrate found him guilty of driving his Maserati at 110mph.

The case against the 31-year-old Cameroon international was proven in his absence in a behind-closed doors hearing.

No plea was entered and Bassong, of The Drive, Wymondham, Norfolk, has been informed he must appear before Suffolk Magistrates’ Court in Ipswich on September 8 for sentencing following his speeding conviction.

The hearing will be to decide whether to disqualify him from driving.

Bassong’s Maserati was caught travelling at 110mph for nearly half a mile on the A11 at Thetford, at 11.35pm on December 21 last year.

Bassong made more than 130 appearances for Norwich.

The former Tottenham, Newcastle, Watford and Wolves central defender was released by the Canaries at the end of last season and is currently a free agent.

Bassong was signed by Norwich in August 2012.

A man has been arrested following a single vehicle crash on the A14 at Nacton which left a vehicle on its roof.

MPs from across the region have met with ambulance bosses amid ongoing concerns over the crisis that hit the service during the festive period.

Markedly fewer people are smoking within the grounds of Ipswich and Colchester hospitals since vaping zones were introduced, bosses have said.

The Felixstowe Fairtrade Forum has come up with an unusual way of promoting events for the upcoming Fairtrade Fortnight.

“I must have been the only headteacher in the country going home every day praying that Ofsted would come in, because we knew we were good,” says Rick Tracey.

Four people have appeared in court charged with affray, following an alleged brawl at an Ipswich hotel.

A Felixstowe man brandished a pruning saw during a late night fight with neighbours at a block of flats in the town, a court has heard.
