Welcome respite for gardeners as rain finally arrives

It's been widely reported that rainfall has been in short supply across the Anglia region this spring, but on Wednesday the heavens finally opened.

Overnight, we had twice as much as we'd previously had in the whole of May which was welcome news for gardeners among others.

The rain isn't expected to last though, with more settled conditions expected to return next week.

When they got there, they found a boy with a suspected stab wound. He was treated at the scene before being taken to nearby Ipswich Hospital.

Three teenagers have since been arrested on suspicion of affray and have been taken in for questioning.

Police investigating the disappearance of missing RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague say they will continue searching a landfill site in Cambridgeshire for at least another three weeks.

The 23-year-old vanished following a night out in Bury St Edmunds in September.

Officers have spent the last 10 and a half weeks sifting through more than 3,500 tonnes of waste at the site in Milton, but haven't found any trace of the airman.

However, they say they have have discovered rubbish from Bury St Edmunds that dates back to the same time Corrie went missing.

As this type of search is so unusual, it was not known how the waste would have moved and as the work has progressed officers have gained a greater understanding of both how the waste is deposited and spread out, and the nature and construction of the site. Officers continue to take all of this into account as the search continues.

The work is under constant review and now, in week 11, in view of the dates on items still being found and advice from officers on the ground and the site team, it is likely the search will continue for at least three further weeks to ensure that the area holding waste from the relevant period is comprehensively examined.

A woman from Thetford in Norfolk who suffered a brain aneurysm two years ago is speaking out in support of a new study that's looked at how people feel after suffering a brain injury.

Fiona Linge collapsed a coupe of weeks after her 50th Birthday. She spent six months in hospital.

The charity Headway has found that 74% of survivors felt like a new person, often experiencing personality changes.

"I don't think I'm a different person, but things are different. It's like I have to forget the old me before this happened."

Cyber attack impact still being felt

Hospitals and doctors' surgeries have been counting the cost of Friday's cyber attack which knocked out some of their computer systems.

72 hours later, the impact is still being felt - with routine operations postponed and some GPs unable to carry out non emergency appointments.

Fears of a second attack proved unfounded, but IT experts are warning of further threats in the future.
