Part of the A14 has been blocked after a crash this morning.

It happened on the westbound carriageway between the junctions for the A11 and the B1506 near Kentford.

The outside lane is blocked after the incident, which involved two vehicles and happened around 7.35am.

Police said they didn’t believe anyone had sustained serious injuries in the collision which was described as a “shunt”.

There is also a single-vehicle accident further back on the same carriageway near Risby.

This incident required fire crews from Bury St Edmunds to remove the roof from the vehicle, which was on a grass verge.

One person was trapped inside and once released was left in the care of the ambulance service.

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.
