    There have been a number of rail delays on the main line from Norwich to London this morning...

    It's the first day since Christmas Eve when trains were due to run normally after bus replacement services were used to provide cover while engineering works were taking place.

    Rail tunnel and passengers

    Greater Anglia says over-running engineering works at Shenfield were to blame for some delays and cancellations into Liverpool Street, but services are now returning to normal. 

    C2C is accepting Greater Anglia tickets between Southend and Fenchurch Street. 

    A passenger taken ill on the 06:50 train at Stratford resulted in some lines being blocked and the train operator is saying passengers should expect disruption mid-morning.

    We will keep you up to date of any further alterations.

    RAC national research shows the offence has reached epidemic proportions and attitudes to using a hand-held phone when driving have relaxed significantly over the past couple of years.

    BBC News

    Happy New Year and welcome to Tuesday's look at news, sport, travel and weather stories from across the county. 

    For many it is the first day back to work after the Christmas and New Year break - and it's a frosty start with a "yellow warning" from the Met Office over icy roads and pavements.

    Today we will join BBC Suffolk's Hands Off campaign which has been launched to get every single driver in the county to leave their phone alone at the wheel.

    The campaign asks you to pledge this New Year to not touch your phone when driving.

    It's time for us to sign off for 2016, but we'll be back again at 08:00 on 3 January, full of resolutions to do all sorts of things that we'll never stick to.

    Mostly dry tonight but with extensive low cloud, mist and fog giving poor visibility and tricky driving conditions in places. 

    Chance of a patchy frost where any clear skies develop. 

    Light southwesterly winds with temperatures locally down to -2C (28F). 

    Fog warning

    Rather grey for New Year’s Eve with mist and fog slowly lifting into low cloud, perhaps a few bright spells developing into the afternoon.

    Suffolk's Peter 'Snakebite' Wright will play defending champion Gary Anderson (pictured) in the semi-finals of the PDC World Darts Championship.

    Anderson, who has won the event two years running, beat Dave Chisnall 5-3 this afternoon at Alexandra Palace, while Wright got the better of James Wade by the same scoreline.

    "I'll have to get even better in the semis because Gary has been playing some super darts up there," Wright acknowledged.

    "It's no good getting big averages in the early rounds. You're supposed to get better towards the end and not rubbish like I have done before."

  12. Man arrested following three-vehicle collision close to Barton Mills

    A man has been arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of drugs, following a three-vehicle collision on the A1065 between Barton Mills and Eriswell this afternoon.

    Police say they were called at 14:30 to reports that a vehicle was on its side in trees, following the collision.

    A woman who was in that vehicle has been airlifted to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge with serious injuries.

    The road has been closed at the junction with the B1112 and at the Fiveways roundabout, while an initial investigation gets under way.

  13. Suffolk's Snakebite into semi-finals

    BBC Radio Suffolk sport

    Peter Wright's impressive form at the PDC World Darts Championship continued this afternoon, as he beat James Wade 5-3 at Alexandra Palace.

    Peter Wright

    The 46-year-old from Mendham hit ten 180s and took out some big finishes to become the first player through to the semi-final stage.

    "I should have won 5-0 to be honest but I missed a few doubles," said Wright. "It was always going to be hard playing the master that is James Wade and it was a hell of a battle."

  14. Corrie's mum calls for thorough search of buildings in 'horseshoe' area

    The latest post by the mother of missing airman Corrie Mckeague on the "Find Corrie" Facebook page includes a map showing the whereabouts of CCTV cameras around the area of Bury St Edmunds known as the "horseshoe", off Brentgovel Street, where he was last seen.

    Nicola Urquhart is calling for a thorough search of buildings in the grey area to the bottom right of this map, as she says her son cannot have left the area in any other direction.
