One of Suffolk's biggest attractions is set to return this spring - with organisers announcing that entries are already full.

The Ipswich to Felixstowe Classic Vehicle Run and Rally has been cancelled for the past two years because of the Covid pandemic.

But it is set to return on Sunday, May 1 and the event - which usually attracts around 500 vintage and veteran cars, motorcycles, commercial and military vehicles - has a full line-up for the day.

Peter Cansick, rally co-ordinator at Ipswich Transport Museum Services Ltd, said: "This event is now fully subscribed.

"All participants for the two previous events, which were cancelled due to the Covid pandemic, have been offered a place and all places are now filled.

"Regretfully we cannot accept any new requests as this event is strictly space controlled due to parking constraints."

The 2020 rally was due to have been the event's 50th anniversary run.
