'Pigs Gone Wild' art trail launches in Ipswich

Some of the sculpture pigs which will be seen on the Pigs Gone Wild trail

A new art trail is being launched in Ipswich this morning.

'Pigs Gone Wild' is an interactive art trail which will see 39 sculpture pigs located across Ipswich for ten weeks.

The event will help raise money for the St Elizabeth Hospice charity.

The interactive sculpture trail features pigs including Ed Sheer-Ham, Elvis Porksley, Porkman Road and The Trotters Pig.

It’s a fantastic venue, full of history and culture which is quite fitting as we hope the Pigs Gone Wild trail will teach people a bit of history and culture about Ipswich.

It was great to see sponsors and artists all in one room and have one final get together before we launch the trail.

The excitement really is building and everyone cannot wait for the highly-anticipated reveal of their pigs on Monday!

A viewer has tweeted us pictures of a car stranded in a flooded ford at Shotesham in Norfolk.

It's not known how the car came to get stuck, but broken windows suggest the occupants had to smash their way out to escape the flood waters.

Some places in the Anglia region have already seen rainfall totals more than double than would normally fall in June.

Ed Balls backs calls for Corbyn to quit

Ed Balls said Labour needs a new leader as he accused Jeremy Corbyn of alienating "both sides" in the EU debate.

The former shadow chancellor and Norwich City chairman told Peston on Sunday that the party "needs a change" to show it has a vision for the future in a general election that could take place within months.

"At a time when you have a big divide between urban Britain which wanted in and heartlands an rural Britain that wanted out, Jeremy Corbyn has actually managed to alienate both sides," he said.

The weather warning is in force from 1pm until 5pm on Sunday 26 June 2016

The Met Office says following this morning's heavy showers, further heavy showers are likely to develop for a time this afternoon across eastern parts of both East Anglia and Kent.

Although some places will miss the showers, please be aware of the risk of localised impacts due to surface water flooding, especially in locations where the ground is already very wet, following heavy rain during the past few days.

The showers should quickly die out later this afternoon.

"The remnants of the deeply unstable airmass of the past few days are expected to remain over the extreme southeast of the UK through today.

"As temperatures rise this afternoon, this will probably lead to further heavy showers developing, although these are unlikely to be quite as heavy as yesterday. Rainfall rates of 15 mm in an hour could occur locally."
