MARTLESHAM: Twelve early 1900s FA Cup final programmes have made a staggering £9,000 at a Martlesham auction house.

The total includes £880 for a 1924 final tie programme when Newcastle beat Aston Villa in front of 92,000 at Wembley.

Collectors came from all over the country to bid at Sunday’s auction in the new Lockdales premises.

There was even a bidder from Holland.

James Sadler, the auction manager of Lockdales, said: “It was quite a collection, and the vast interest is reflected in the final tally.

“The final that year was linked to the Empire Exhibition at Crystal Palace.

“Because it was such a famed game, many fakes have appeared down the years.

“But this is a very rare original.”

He revealed that it was originally wrapped in a tissue cover.

Meanwhile, a large batch of lifeboat postcards including many Aldeburgh rescue boats fetched £1,600.

Organisations from across Suffolk have shown support for the people of Manchester after Monday night’s atrocity at the Arena concert.

Suffolk police are taking part in a pre-planned terrorist training exercise today just hours after a suicide bomber killed more than 20 people, including children, and injured nearly 60 others in Manchester.

Campaigning for the General Election both locally and nationally has been suspended in the wake of the terrorist atrocity in Manchester.

The death toll from the Manchester bomb attack has risen to 22, with 59 injured, Greater Manchester Police chief constable Ian Hopkins said.

A three-foot grass snake escaped a watery fate thanks to attentive homeowners and an animal rescuer.

Trains between Ipswich and Lowestoft were cancelled this morning, due to overrunning engineering works.

A motorist who was petrified of going to prison after committing his fourth drink-driving offence has been branded as “selfish” and “ignorant” by the mother of a Suffolk man killed by a drink-driver.

One of Ipswich’s most prolific pilferers has become the first shoplifter to be given a criminal behaviour order banning him from all the shops in the town centre.

Couples thinking about having a baby are invited to meet fertility experts at an information day.

The hoardings around a new Joules store under construction in Ipswich have come away, revealing the brand’s trademark yellow facade.
