With one crucial vote out of the way all eyes are now on the General Election less than eight months away.

Our region will be a key battleground and Labour have plenty to do with just three MPs in the west of the region and no MPs in Essex, Suffolk or Norfolk.

Multi-million pound Tesco store 'mothballed'

It is the country's biggest supermarket chain and until today appeared to have an ever growing number of stores in the region but now Tesco is to mothball one of its brand new shops in Cambridgeshire.

It happened in the early hours of Monday 18 August in Short Street. A 20-year-old man was on his way home from at night out at the Churchill's Bar in the town when he was approached by a group of men who started assaulting him, knocking him to the ground, where he continued to be punched and kicked.

The victim, who is in his 20s and lives locally, returned home but was admitted to hospital a few days later when his condition worsened. Doctors found that he had a fractured skull and a bleed on the brain.

The attack happened in Essex Street, near the junction with Chichester Road at around 2am. It is believed to have been an unprovoked attack.
