Does anyone know what was going on last night around 6ish with all the flashing blue lights at the bottom of the hill?
If a driver in an incident was to blame, maybe it could be classified as driving with undue care and attention? Oh, I'm sure that is already an offence...
It would need to be witnessed by police to come to that conclusion

I also remember the indoor market at the Corn Exchange albeit only vaguely but I am certain that it was successful and well attended. I recently visited Tavistock Market which is 800 years old and open six days a week. It will close later this year ... [ more ]
The market was indoor at the Corn Exchange for several decades. I haven't seen a UK outdoor supermarket yet... perhaps people would appreciate an indoor market?
Can anyone recommend a reliable person to sort out my laptop before I throw it out of the window please. Since upgrading to Windows 10 it's not been right.
Windows 10, absolutely awful operating system. Take it back to an older version, or go Apple
Although Windows 10 is not everyone's cup of tea, there are ways to make it work better. Come and speak to one of our local IT experts for free at Suffolk AgeUK Ipswich Help Centre (in Town Centre, opposite Sainsbury's) to get some some impartial ... [ more ]

Last week Suffolk County Council put in an Planning Application (16/01121/FPC) to undertake ground investigations for an Upper Orwell Crossing. An daily (Mon-Fri) 24 hour operation for 4 months is going to terrorise local residents (streets below), ... [ more ]
Ipswich Ltd Hi Ipswich Ltd, Just heard back from the team, no they weren't specifically invited to attend the DCC this morning, but they are going to provide some convenient dates to get together and engage. Thanks, Matt, Customer Service.
So, IMT is showing resistance to the concept of an Upper Orwell Crossing yet they weren't inviting to a scheduled meeting to decide a planning application for the first step of it? Sounds very like local politics in action, however, going by ... [ more ]

but they're not working seven days a week, are they? And when you say remodelling, how? The traffic at the moment is fighting to come out of an exit that was created by the council that goes against all common sense? No temporary lights were placed on ... [ more ]
Take Princes Street for example, when work finally got going they did it relatively quickly. Not fast but not too unreasonable. Before that it was months of little progress.
Has anybody else ever had any problems parking their car outside Brooklands car sales? For the second time I have had my car severely scratched (as in with a screwdriver down to the metal) whilst parked outside Brooklands last night between ... [ more ]
I assume you informed the police? If you had had your car damaged previously and heard of similar incidents before, parking in the same place seems a bit foolhardy. If the police are informed they may be able to access local CCTV in the area.
Very concerned about the crime spree in Ipswich recently. Ten years after the serial killings and zest nightclub shootings, our very "sleepy town" has been awash with crime. Two fatal stabbings (two murders), arson, two more stabbings, and at least ... [ more ]

Dear Joanna, I couldn't agree with you more. It is my perception that developments will completely overtake the politicians - the pressures will just be too great. The country cannot afford the costs of care for the elderly based on the current ... [ more ]
It always comes as bit of a shock when habits lasting years suddenly come to an end. Checked with school staff just to make sure that the car parked in the bins place was not my mind playing tricks on me.
