    In a busy day for Ipswich's street culture as in addition to the Pigs Gone Wild trail, Cardinal Wolsey was given a bit of a makeover on Sunday.

    The statue on St Peter's Street was decorated along with nearby bollards and trees.

    It was the idea of Sue Newbery, who runs a knitting shop on the road.

    There's no chance of Lowestoft boxer Anthony Ogogo resting on his laurels after another convincing victory at weekend.

    The 27-year-old's opponent Frane Radnic lasted just one round at the O2 Arena on Saturday, before his retirement extended Ogogo's professional record to 10 wins from 10 fights.

    "The momentum is now starting to build," Ogogo said. "I'm hopefully boxing again in three weeks because the more I fight the better and sharper I'll become. It's going to be a cracking journey."

  7. Daughter of Tunisia victim gains 'hope' from fundraising

    The daughter of a Lowestoft man killed in a Tunisian terror attack says fundraising in her father's name has helped bring something "positive" from the tragedy.

    Stuart Cullen

    Stuart Cullen was one of 38 tourists killed on a beach in Sousse a year ago.

    His family have so far raised more than £12,000 for a meningitis charity and plan to continue their efforts, with his daughter Emma singing at an event at the King Alfred pub, in Carlton Colville, on 9 July.

    "My dad was at my first ever gig and he went to every single gig from then on," she said. "He was always so enthusiastic when I sung.

    "Although it will always be a horrendous anniversary and something no-one ever looks forward to, we would like there also to be something positive to look on and some hope."

    BBC News

    Norfolk county councillors have voted 34 to 28 in favour of signing the Norfolk and Suffolk devolution deal, with two abstentions.

    If the plan is backed by all the other councils in Norfolk and Suffolk, the government has pledged £30m over five years to help with housing need in Norwich and Ipswich.

  10. Pigs Gone Wild: Des-pig-able Me

    Richard Haugh

    BBC News

    Boarba Fett, Elvis Porksley, Captain Pigwash... there's a steady flow of puns on the Pigs Gone Wild trail.

    One of the less obvious, and perhaps tenuous, ones is a tribute to the Minions... titled The Swinions.

  11. Piggie problems

    Richard Haugh

    BBC News

    In the space of 24 hours, the 69 pigs (39 full-size and 30 small ones) have made a big difference to Ipswich, adding a welcome splash of colour and creativity.

    The Trotters Pig

    However, the launch has not been without its issues. Due to "technical difficulties", the app which is advertised on the base of each of the pigs and adds a way of digitally recording which ones people have visited, is not yet available.

    An accompanying sticker book is also being released today, but the stickers themselves are not quite ready. 

    They are due to be given away with copies of the Ipswich Star and East Anglian Daily Times.

  12. Ed Sheer Ham... the movie

    Richard Haugh

    BBC News

    Getting a close up look of the Ed Sheeran pig today I was really impressed with the small details, which include the singer's tattoos and guitar.

    On my return to the office it was good to take a look at this video, which shows how artist Martin J Wall created Ed Sheer Ham.

    After the 10-week Pigs Gone Wild extravaganza the large pig sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for St Elizabeth Hospice which improves life for people living with a progressive illness.

  13. Is that a Blackburn kit?

    Richard Haugh

    BBC News

    It's an interesting choice of design for Porkman Road, the pig sitting outside Ipswich Town's ground.

    The pig is wearing the club's home kit on one side, and the away strip on the other.

    I can see how this is a good way of showing the full range of replica products available in the club shop... but some might say it looks like the pig is wearing a Blackburn kit.

  14. Euro 2016: Butcher backs Sterling recall

    Brenner Woolley

    BBC Radio Suffolk sport

    Just before we return to Pigs Gone Wild art trail... former Ipswich and England defender Terry Butcher says he would be happy to see Raheem Sterling back in the England team for tonight's game against Iceland.

    Terry Butcher

    After his widely criticised performance in the group stage win over Wales, the Manchester City winger is now being tipped as a surprise starter in Nice.

    "Confidence was the only thing that was missing, because he has the pace and skill to get around people and get into the box," Butcher said. 

    "He can draw fouls and penalties and England need someone like that."

  15. Boxing: A bittersweet victory for Ogogo

    Brenner Woolley

    BBC Radio Suffolk sport

    Suffolk boxer Anthony Ogogo made it 10 wins from 10 professional fights as he brushed aside Frane Radnic at the O2 Arena on Saturday night.

    The Croatian retired at the end of the first round, leaving the Lowestoft man a little disappointed that the fight didn't go on longer.

    "I wanted to go in there and really make a statement," said Ogogo. "I would've really got a hold of him in the next round, but it was great to be back in the ring and have my second fight in four weeks."

  16. Athletics: Sayers Olympics hopes in the balance

    BBC Radio Suffolk sport

    A piggy homage to cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins neatly takes us to sport... and Newmarket's Goldie Sayers missed out on a 12th British Javelin title yesterday in Birmingham.

    Goldie Sayers

    The 33-year-old finished second, behind Jo Blair, who threw a personal best of 57.44 metres.

    Sayers will now have to produce a throw of 62 metres or more before 12 July, in order to qualify for the Olympics in Rio.

  17. 'Look, mummy.... another piggie!!!!'

    Children are loving the Pigs Gone Wild sculptures.

    Sir Bradley Piggins

    I've just been out on my bike to take some photos of the pigs, and was struck by how often I heard young children shouting a version of the word 'pig' in pure excitement.

    The 39 larger than life-size sculptures, plus 30 smaller ones, are spread out around town and provide a good way of getting to visit landmarks including Christchurch Park and the football ground.

    I wonder how interaction with the pigs will change in the evening, when people on a night out are added to the mix.
