The Royal Mint has unveiled plans to design a new fifty pence coin to celebrate composer Benjamin Britten's centenary.
More than 40 firefighters have been tackling a blaze at a restaurant in Aldeburgh, Suffolk this morning.
Tesco's plans to build a store in Aldeburgh are causing controversy.
Suffolk Police are set for a busy August in Aldeburgh and will be putting on extra patrols as the carnival period approaches.
Traditionally crime in the popular resort rises in the weeks around the Aldeburgh Carnival, and additional resources are dedicated to police the town.
This year officers have also been working behind the scenes to put in place a number of measures aimed at tackling drunken and disorderly behaviour, and will be pro-actively dealing with anyone causing trouble.
Leiston & Aldeburgh Safer Neighbourhood Team sergeant Mark Beresford said while last year had been generally one of the quietest Augusts for the town the influx of people to the area during the carnival period meant it was busy with a host of challenges for police.
"Last year there were a number of alcohol-related issues following the carnival and excessive drinking was one of things members of the public highlighted to officers as being of concern. This was also a contributory factor in several violent incidents.
"This year we have spoken to licensees and will be working with licensed premises to encourage responsible retailing during this period.
"We will be highlighting to staff that they shouldn't be serving those who have clearly already had too much to drink and will have a police presence in the area to deter disorderly behaviour."
The aim is to reduce anti-social behaviour, particularly in the seafront area, and to support this all street lighting will be left on overnight during this period.

The Suffolk studio in which Benjamin Britten composed some of his most famous works has been transformed to the way it was in the 1950s.
Visitors to the Red House in Aldeburgh - where Britten lived for the last three decades of his life - will now be able to see exactly where the 20th century great penned masterpieces such as War Requiem and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
The converted hayloft was designed and built by the celebrated architect HT "Jim" Cadbury-Brown in 1958.
The restored studio contains the original Steinway piano, artwork, furniture and ornaments from 1958, and is based on Cadbury-Brown's design plans and contemporary photographs.
