  3. More memories of past Ipswich vs Norwich derbies

    BBC Sport

    We're gearing up for the derby between Norwich and Ipswich on Sunday and so we found a few more pictures of past clashes featuring Blues victories, as promised earlier.

    Here's a photo from Ipswich Town's 3-2 win in April 2009. It shows Pablo Counago (left) of Ipswich battling with Jason Shackell of Norwich during the Championship match.

  4. Bricks thrown onto A11

    One car had its windscreen and roof damaged as bricks were thrown from a bridge onto the A11 at Attleborough.

    Norfolk Police said they are searching for a man in a pink jacket with a hat with flaps covering his ears, who was believed to have been riding a bicycle.

    Another vehicle had its front bumper damaged during the incident which police said happened on the Besthorpe Road Bridge at about 14:30 on Wednesday.

    There was a further incident today at about 13:20 when a man was seen throwing glass from the same bridge, but no damage was caused this time.

    A dry start to the night across the BBC East region with clear spells, but patchy rain will eventually spread in from the north-west. 

    The winds will pick up to a moderate-to-fresh south-westerly, and temperatures will drop to 3C (37F).

  6. Concern over stroke support cuts in Great Yarmouth and Waveney

    Nikki Fox

    BBC Look East

    A charity which has helped hundreds of stroke survivors says it is having to close a local branch because it has lost its funding.

    The Stroke Association supports people in their own homes and provides an outreach worker in Great Yarmouth and Waveney. 


    But the Great Yarmouth and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the local NHS health commissioners, have said they can no longer afford the service.

    Ritired DJ Ken Mason, who lives alone on a caravan park near Great Yarmouth, said the support he received from an outreach worker provided by the Stroke Association was vital after he left hospital following a stroke.

    "Without the support I would have ended up either dead or in hospital," he told the BBC.

    Sara Betsworth, of the Stroke Association

    Sara Betsworth (pictured), of the Stroke Association, criticised the CCG for "salami slicing" an important service.

    "The CCG should be talking to us and to stroke survivors and local people, because my understanding is they haven't been talked too," she said.

    The CCG declined an interview, but said it made the decision "because the Stroke Association said it could not continue providing the same level of service for the money which was available". 

    It says the charity signposts people to information and does not fulfill a health role. This is disputed by the Stroke Association.

  7. The couples divided by football rivalry

    BBC Local Live

    I can't help thinking a draw at Carrow Road on Sunday is the only way these "divided" families from Stowmarket are still going to be speaking after the game, and even then they would have to agree it was a fair result.

  8. Ipswich Town: McCarthy faces midfield dilemma

    BBC Radio Suffolk sport

    In terms of team selection, the main talking point among Ipswich Town fans heading to Sunday's East Anglian derby will be who should start in midfield.

    Cole Skuse and Aiden McGeady

    Cole Skuse (pictured left), Toumani Diagouraga, Emyr Huws and Grant Ward are all battling it out for three positions, although manager Mick McCarthy seems to be suggesting it'll be Skuse plus two others.

    "He's got serious competition now, but it still doesn't mean he's not an automatic choice," said the Ipswich boss.

    "You have to let your guard down and not play well but I can't honestly, hand on heart, say Skusey has done that. 

    "He's been terrific. Although it is a difficult decision as they've all played well."

  9. Norwich bookshop nominated as top independent

    BBC News

    Shops in Norwich, Bedford, Huntingdon and Suffolk have been nominated for the title of top independent bookshop in the country.

    The Book Hive in London Street, Norwich, which opened about eight years ago, has been named with four others in the East category of the British Book Awards.

    The bookshop's owner Henry Layte said: "It's always nice to be be on this list. The only reason I decided to set up an independent bookshop in Norwich was that there wasn't one in the city."

    Mr Layte has also started publishing books with Propolis Books, which is due to publish the new collection by celebrated poet Simon Armitage. 

    Other shops in the East category to be nominated are: Niche Comics in Huntingdon,  Lindum Books in Lincoln,  Harris & Harris in Clare in Suffolk (pictured below) and  Rogan’s Books in Bedford.

    Harris & Harris, Clare

    Tom Tivnan, features and insight editor of The Bookseller, said: “We have really been astounded this year by the sheer breadth, depth and quality of the entries. Whittling them down to the shortlists has been an extremely difficult process. It’s still tough out there for indies, but these shops are showing how resourceful, creative and passionate booksellers can not only survive, but thrive in today’s market.”

    Customers can say share their views on the bookshops with The Bookseller Magazine online  here.

  11. Norwich vs Ipswich derby memories

    With the latest local derby football match between Norwich City and Ipswich Town on Sunday, we thought we'd bring you some photographs of previous games.

    Here's one from April 2011 of Norwich City players celebrating Gareth McAuley's own goal when Ipswich Town lost 5-1 at Portman Road during the Championship match.

    And from May 2015, here's a photograph of Norwich City fans show their support prior to the Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final second leg match between Norwich City and Ipswich Town at Carrow Road. Norwich won 3-1  (4-2 agg).

    Norwich City's Wes Hoolahan had admitted The Canaries might have been better off playing Ipswich Town a month ago. 

    The Irishman goes into Sunday's Carrow Road clash with an impressive derby record, having won six and drawn two of the eight that he's played in.

    City face an Ipswich side unbeaten in four games. 

    "Ipswich are well drilled and organised and Mick [McCarthy] has them playing well now," said Hoolahan. 

  13. Ipswich Town: McGoldrick wary of 'magician' Hoolahan

    Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick has made no secret of his admiration for Norwich City attacker Wes Hoolahan.

    The pair, who are team-mates with the Republic of Ireland, will be on opposite sides of the East Anglian derby divide at Carrow Road on Sunday.

    "He's one of the best I've played with," said McGoldrick. "He's a magician in training, you just can't get the ball off of him. 

    "We're going to have to be very wary of him. 

    "He still should be playing in the Premier League in my eyes, he's a wonderful player."

  14. Looking ahead to the derby

    Grant Holt, who's scored in East Anglian derbies, was the guest on BBC Radio Norfolk's The Scrimmage last night.
