A scheme to bring super-fast broadband to every home and business across Suffolk is already three months ahead of schedule.

The county council and BT will celebrate the arrival of high speed internet to communities in Lowestoft today, 6 August.

It's the first of 16 across Suffolk which, by the end of September, will have access to speeds of at least two mega-bits-per-second.

By the end of 2015, every home and business in Suffolk will have access to the technology.

Suffolk's Olympic bronze medalist boxer Anthony Ogogo made it three wins out of three since he turned professional with victory over Gary Boulden in Hull last night.

The Lowestoft star overwhelmed his opponent with a brilliant display of powerful punching before the fight was stopped in the fifth round to crown another successful night for the hugely popular twenty four year old middleweight.


Funeral of tragic Lowestoft mum

The funeral's been held today of Fiona Anderson, the pregnant mother who took her own life after killing her three children in Lowestoft.

Dozens of mourners attended St Michael's Church in Oulton, near Lowestoft. Miss Anderson, 23, was brought to church in a pink coffin, in a horse-drawn carriage.

Many of the mourners wore items of pink clothing. Tributes were given by Fiona's mother and father, Michael and Kerry Anderson, and a friend. Miss Anderson, who was heavily pregnant when she died in April, was buried with her unborn daughter Evalie Brianna.

Miss Anderson died after falling from the Battery Green multi-storey car park in Gordon Road on Monday, April 15. Her children three-year-old Levina, Addy, two, and 11-month-old Kyden were found dead by police at their flat in London Road South later on the same day.
