Ipswich will be aiming to win their first game at Carrow Road since 2006 on Sunday.

"If you come to both clubs you get well received, it's a nice place to come to, expect when Norwich and Ipswich pay each other," McCarthy said.

"They hate one another and I've been surprised at that."

There's 'overwhelming' support for a bypass to be built around villages close to the new Sizewell C power station says Central Suffolk MP Dr Dan Poulter.

He's written to residents as part of the ongoing consultation about improving the A12.

86% of people supported a bypass for Marlesford, Little Glemham, Stratford St Andrew and Farnham.

"Through regular contact with residents and Parish Councils, I was all too aware of the strength of feeling supporting a four villages bypass and I am delighted that my survey has captured the views of people living and working in key communities affected by the building of Sizewell C."
