The wheels on the Felixstowe bus won’t go round the Gainsborough estate anymore.

Changes are due to be made to bus services between Ipswich and Felixstowe in order to compete with the rail line to the coast.

The changes mean the bus will no longer travel to the Gainsborough area of town.

Instead it will go from Ipswich Town centre, to Spring Road, Heath Road, Warren Heath, along the old A45 to Trimley and then to Felixstowe. Read the full details by clicking the link above.

A Batman design has been put onto a prosthetic leg in Ipswich

Local man Chris Winder, who lost his leg five years ago after a football injury is thrilled to have had his prosthetic limb decorated by Nanotech Pristine in Princes Street.

The car repair store created the design free of charge for Mr Winder after realising this isn’t a service that is offered anywhere else locally.

They will continue this generosity to anyone else that would like a design put on a prosthetic limb or wheel chair for the rest of the year.
