SCANDINAVIAN migrants have been on the hunt for food this week.

And one tiny fieldfare took his search to the garden of Brian and Margaret Holland, in Ipswich.

Mr Holland said: “Margaret as usual cannot miss an opportunity so has been taking a few shot from our conservatory with doors wide open and yes, she froze, but got these images. They show how birds cope in the snow with a little help from people.”

Realising that the tiny creature would be struggling for food, the couple helped him out.

“All we did was to place a few apples on the lawn in our tiny garden.”

A man collapsed after being taken ill on the outskirts of Ipswich town centre at lunchtime today.

There have been calls for common sense over a series of partial road closures around Stowmarket, which are causing congestion on several main roads.

As a search continues at a landfill site in Milton in Cambridgeshire, police are confirming that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will be working alongside officers investigating Corrie McKeague’s disappearance.

In the months since RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague went missing after a night out in Bury St Edmunds, very little information has come to light.

Music therapy sessions shelved after a funding cut have been reintroduced after a business’ donation.

What better way to illustrate the relationship between siblings than with a cub fight between young foxes.

Children all over Suffolk will be proudly presenting their mums with flowers, chocolates and hand-crafted cards on Sunday as we celebrate Mother’s Day.
