    Manager Mick McCarthy says fellow forward David McGoldrick could return next weekend when the Blues face Reading at Portman Road.

    The boss has also been updating us on the progress of some of his longer-term absentees:

    "Tommy Smith is training. He won't be travelling tomorrow but he is fit and just needs to get some match practice," he said.

    "Tom Adeyemi is also feeling a lot better about himself. To get good players back will be of a real benefit to us.

    "Joe Garner trained yesterday and fully today. Thankfully we didn't miss him while he was out, but it's damn good to have him back!"

  5. Community hub plans for Southwold Hospital to get green light

    Councillors are to consider plans to turn an abandoned hospital into a community hub.

    Southwold Hospital

    The planned development for Southwold Hospital will see the site redeveloped into a library, creche, cafe, small business centre, four flats and five houses.

    The original Victorian hospital building will be converted and restored, while 20th Century extensions will be demolished.

    A campaign group, Save Our Southwold (SOS) was set up after the NHS announced the closure of the hospital in 2015, and a steering group of SOS bought the site in February.

    Waveney District Council's planning committee is recommended to approve the plans when it meets on Tuesday.

  6. Flood warnings in place for Suffolk coast

    The Late Late Show host James Corden has been moonlighting this week as general manager of the Forum in Inglewood, California ahead of the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball.

    His backstage duties included telling off Ed Sheeran, giving Demi Lovato a pep talk and Niall Horan a massage.

    Niall's old One Direction bandmate Liam also cuddles up to the presenter on the couch, while Sam Smith has one or two demands.

    But watch what happens around 10 minutes in.

    The general manager goes above and beyond his new job description to help out Taylor after one of her backing dancers pulls out.

    The Londoner lets it all hang out in a fishnet outfit and looks like he was born for the role.

    “I’m ready. I’m ready" says James.

    "Use me. I’ll slot right in."

    We're not sure Taylor agrees.

    Watch above.

  10. Celina praise for 'intelligent' Waghorn

    Graeme Mac

    BBC Radio Suffolk sport

    Winger Bersant Celina says he is learning a lot from the more experienced players within the Ipswich Town team during his spell on loan from Manchester City.

    Martyn Waghorn

    The Kosovan international has established himself as a regular in Mick McCarthy's starting line-up in recent weeks, and now has seven goals from 20 appearances for the Blues in all competitions.

    Celina found himself on the scoresheet again during last week's 4-2 win over Nottingham Forest, thanks largely to some excellent work from his teammate Martyn Waghorn (pictured), who also found the net.

    "I really get on with him," Celina told us.

    "He's a really intelligent player and I think I am as well. When you have two intelligent players playing together, then good things can happen, and they are."

  11. Manchester City loanee Celina 'happy' at Ipswich

    Graeme Mac

    BBC Radio Suffolk sport

    Bersant Celina says any talk of him leaving Ipswich Town before the end of his loan spell is hearsay and nothing more.

    Bersant Celina

    Earlier in the season when the Kosovan was struggling to establish himself in the first team, a tweet he posted led to speculation that he would leave the Blues in January and return to parent club Manchester City.

    Since then Celina has become a key player for Mick McCarthy with seven goals to his name, and today he has been telling us he is loving life in Suffolk.

    "I'm happy here. It is different from Manchester. It is better weather," the 21-year-old joked.

    "The bond here is amazing. It's the best team I have been with when it comes to team spirit and how everyone gets on with each other."

  12. Suffolk Police want better on-street testing of 'acids'

    A senior Suffolk police officer has called for new methods of carrying out on-street testing of suspected corrosive liquids, to tackle the growing number of acid attacks.

    It comes after an attack just last night in Lowestoft, where an officer described the victim's skin as "bubbling", although he was treated for what police later described as "superficial injuries".

    It followed an altercation between two men.

    Assistant Chief Constable Rachel Kearton

    Assistant Chief Constable Rachel Kearton (pictured) said she wanted new legislation to criminalise the carrying of corrosive substances, if suspects could not prove they were carrying the liquids for legitimate reasons.

    She said the Metropolitan Police had stopped their litmus-style on-street test, because of difficulties around accuracy.

  13. MP: Brexit will give Lowestoft 'once in a lifetime opportunity'

    Andrew Sinclair

    BBC Look East political correspondent

    The MP for Lowestoft has told MPs that Brexit is a "once in a lifetime opportunity to rejuvenate the East Anglian fishing industry".

    Fishing boats in Lowestoft harbour

    Peter Aldous told the annual fishing debate in Parliament that leaving the EU presented "a great opportunity to reset the framework in which this great industry operates".

    Mr Aldous said that under the current rules the region, and particularly Lowestoft, derives very little economic benefit from the fish stocks off its shores.

    He called for local boats to have "fair and equitable" access to the North Sea with a more generous quota for inshore fishing boats, which make up most the East Anglian fleet since the decline of the trawling industry.

    "The local infrastructure also needs supporting with safe berths, better landing points and modern markets with upgraded freezer facilities," he said.

    The ex-Ipswich trio of Harry Martin, James Gall and George Pinner (pictured) all featured for England.

    Pinner was recently named on the shortlist for Goalkeeper Of The Year for the forthcoming FIH Hockey Stars awards.

    Ipswich women's co-captain Emma Millar has been telling us that her former clubmate's performances deserve the highest possible recognition.

    "He's been in fantastic form. He makes some saves and you think 'how on earth did he do that?'" she said.

    "I think as a small town we really do punch above our weight."
