SHAME on you!

That's the Evening Star's verdict on Suffolk County Council today, for being as slow-moving as some of the traffic causing terrifying danger on one of the area's busiest roads.

SHAME on you!

That's the Evening Star's verdict on Suffolk County Council today, for being as slow-moving as some of the traffic causing terrifying danger on one of the area's busiest roads.

For here we are 18 months on, and still no action has been taken to close the killer gap on the A12 at Brightwell – despite highways chiefs' promise that it would be shut.

Vehicles can still turn right across 70mph traffic, just as happened the day that Edward and Pamela Bishopp were killed in an horrific crash.

And each day many more drivers still run the risk of a similar accident at the gap and the possibility that someone else could die needlessly.

Today the Evening Star asks: When will this gap finally be closed?
