A 34-year-old man from Kent has been charged with the rapes of two women in Suffolk.

Police were contacted last Sunday, August 7th, by a woman who reported being attacked in the early hours of the morning.

The victim met a man while walking back from Sudbury town centre at about 4.30am and said she was raped by him at an address in nearby Great Cornard.

Detectives later discovered a second woman had also been raped in the same house.

Erkan Bozyel, of Station Road, New Romney in Kent, was arrested at Liverpool Street Station in London on Thursday and brought back to Suffolk for questioning.

He has been charged with two counts of rape.

Sudbury to keep its fire engine - but other Suffolk communities will lose out

A Suffolk market town will no longer lose its fire engine after the county's fire service scaled back proposed cuts following a public consultation.

But the decision to retain a crew at Sudbury will mean communities elsewhere - including Ipswich and Lowestoft - will be hit instead.

Suffolk fire service needs to save £1.3m and is still short of that target.
