New warning that 80% of ash trees could die

There's a new warning that the deadly ash dieback disease is still causing devastation in the countryside and woodland.

The Chalara fraxinea fungus which causes it was first found in the wild in Norfolk two years ago, before cases sprang up around the country.

Scientists say that up to 80% of all ash trees could be lost.

More than 100 piglets have been stolen from a farm in Suffolk.

It happened close to The Street at Cavenham, between Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket, on Wednesday afternoon.

Two witnesses reported hearing pigs squealing during the afternoon and saw two men taking piglets from a pen and putting them into a green trailer towed by a 4x4 vehicle.

Checks later found 102 animals had been stolen.
