Environmental Health staff from the borough council will be undertaking daily visits to monitor the impact of the smoke on local people.

Local rivers and ground water have not been polluted yet. The Environment Agency will continue to monitor the run-off.

Anyone with health concerns is advised to contact their GP or contact the NHS 111 service out of hours.

People are advised to keep their windows and doors shut, and avoid spending unnecessary time outdoors. Motorists who have to travel through the smoke should keep their windows closed, turn off air conditioning and keep air vents closed.

Take a look outside and you may well spot one or two sparrows, robins, bluetits or other common garden birds.

This year, you may also see a much rarer visitor. It's called a waxwing; a small starling-sized bird with colourful markings.

The RSPB, is describing it as a 'Waxwing Winter' with large numbers arriving in the Anglia region, and other parts of the UK.

The charity hopes it will encourage more of us to take part in its Big Garden Birdwatch on 28-30 January. Parts of of the video report were filmed at St Andrews School in Biggleswade in Bedfordshire.

Ipswich Town have completed the loan signing of Leeds United midfielder Toumani Diagouraga.

The former Peterborough United man has agreed a deal to stay at Portman Road until the end of the season.

29-year-old Diagouraga was a key part of the Brentford team that reached the Championship play-offs in 2014/15, before he signed for Leeds last January.

The Frenchman has struggled to get into Leeds' team this season though, with Garry Monk's men currently sitting 4th in The Championship.

Meanwhile, former Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor is training with Ipswich this week with a view to earning a contract until the end of the campaign.

Taylor is a free agent after leaving American side Portland Timbers last month.

"We have lost Adam Webster for the season so we are short on numbers and Steven Taylor would add that experience,” manager Mick McCarthy said.

"He will come in and train this week and we will see how it goes. We know about his quality."

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for fog in the East of England.

Areas of freezing fog, some dense, are expected to form again during Monday night and into Tuesday morning.

The Met Office says the fog will become widespread in places and driving conditions will be difficult with journeys likely to take longer than usual.

It is possible there will be delays to air travel.

The weather warning covers the whole of the Anglia region and is valid from 5pm on Monday 23 January until 11am on Tuesday 24 January 2017

"The fog will form initially, and will probably be most widespread, across parts of the southwest of England, southeast Wales and the southwest Midlands.

"Fog will also form elsewhere but areas of cloud are leading to uncertainty in the timing and extent of the fog and will result in the fog waxing and waning through the night and during Tuesday morning.

"However it is likely that some dense fog patches will develop in other parts of the warning area by Tuesday morning.

"The fog is expected to slowly thin and lift during Tuesday although it may persist in some areas throughout the day."
