Film script plans for Sudbury reunited marching band

More than twenty years after they disbanded the Sudbury marching band and troup in Suffolk has reunited.

After six months of rehearsals they made their first appearance in decades at the town carnival and raised thousands of pounds for cancer charities while re-living their teenage years.

It's been quite a journey and if their story sounds like a film script to you, you are not alone. There are plans to make a drama about the girls, coming to your screens soon.

A top official in the Royal Household, who is from Suffolk, has been sent for trial charged with receiving payments of more than £100,000 to award contracts for work at royal palaces.

Ron Harper, who worked as Deputy Property Manager at the Royal Household from 1994 until he was suspended in 2012, appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court with eight other men and one woman, who all indicated not guilty pleas.

It is alleged that between 2006 and 2011, a number of company directors bribed Harper, 61, of Glemsford, Sudbury, in return for him awarding them large contracts for work at the Royal Palaces.
