OUTCRY AFTER DOG BITES BOY

There was outcry on the Clements estate in Haverhill after a three-year-old boy was bitten by stray Alsation.

He was bitten on his ear and near his eye while outside his home and twice had to go to hospital for treatment.

His mum said the issue of stray dogs roaming about estate was becoming more of a worry for people living there.

ROUNDABOUT GO AHEAD

The go-ahead was due to be given for the new roundabout at the Cangle junction in Haverhill.

But objections to the plans to pull down the Woolpack pub and the restaurant next door to make way for it were likely to cause a delay in order for a public inquiry to be held.

Leading the opposition to the £! million Suffolk County Council plan was Haverhill Town Council, who wanted to see a trial run of traffic lights at the busy town centre junction.

County surveyor Jeffery Stansfield said because it was a controversial scheme it there would probably be very little prospect of it being started within four to five years.
