A Greater Anglia train.


There are changes to this morning’s trains.

The 8.25am Ipswich to Felixstowe service is cancelled, as well as the 8.54am Felixstowe to Ipswich service.

And the 7.50am service, from Harwich International to Cambridge, will start at Ipswich.

The changes are due to a number of technical faults and a refurbishment programme affecting the availability of some diesel trains used on rural routes.

This is to ensure the maximum number of our train services are able to run.

Abellio Greater Anglia thanked users for their ‘patience and unserstanding’, and said that fleet engineers are working as quickly as possible to resolve the train faults and restore the full scheduled service.

All services running to and from London Liverpool Street may be delayed by up to 10 minutes at short notice due to signalling problems at the station.


Hopes of saving a supported housing scheme for vulnerable young people in Ipswich are still alive as bosses delay making a final decision on its future.

Work to rebuild the Princes Street/Queen Street area in Ipswich town centre is now centred on Giles’ Circus – but county chiefs have promised this will be clear by the time the Christmas lights go on next month.

More than three million day visitors to Ipswich helped to swell tourism business coffers by £250m last year, according to new statistics.

Education bosses in Suffolk have welcomed latest figures which mark the county’s highest school attendance record in the last decade.

French authorities are today due to start clearing the refugee camp in Calais, known as ‘The Jungle’.

The wife of a Woodbridge man who went missing while walking in France three months ago says she has been ‘wrapped in a cloak of love’ by people in the town since his disappearance.

Trains between Ipswich and Cambridge have been cancelled.

It is exactly one month to the day since 23-year-old Corrie McKeague apparently vanished in Bury St Edmunds – yet people with potentially vital information still have not come forward.

Just a week after Abellio’s new Greater Anglia franchise began, rail chiefs, politicians, and business leaders are gathering in Ipswich today to look at the next steps for the region’s rail services.

It’s nearly Halloween and there is a variety of events across Suffolk this half term to keep your little monsters entertained no matter what their age.
