Their fight was in vain and Suffolk, like Essex, voted to leave, a decision that helped the Leave group secure a 3.8pc majority nationally to defeat the Remain camp.

And volunteers from Wild Lives rescued a baby deer in Essex.

There was rain this week, lots of it. And our photographers braved the shower to capture the torrential downpours and the flooding that came as a result.
