Traders on Fore Street in Ipswich say they've devastated at the impact gas works have had on their businesses.

The Dress Circle and The Spread Eagle pub have both lost thousands of pounds in trade since the road closed at the start of August.

National Grid say the work was vital and complex, and that compensation will be available. Ipswich Borough Council has agreed to defer business rate payment.
