Around 20,000 people lined the streets of Haverhill to see the Olympic Torch pass through town.

Day 49 of the London 2012 relay saw the Torch go from Chelmsford to Cambridge, with Linton Village College student Issy Gower, from Arrendene Road, Haverhill, and Team GB Paralympian Caroline Maclean among the 11 who carried it through Haverhill.

Plans to build Haverhill’s first special free school adjacent Samuel Ward Academy were approved by the Department for Education.

Bunthawee Rimmer is given a life sentence for the murder of 77-year-old Paul Norfolk.

Rimmer was ordered to serve at least 11 years for battering Mr Norfolk to death with a claw hammer while he slept in December 2011.
