MINI-ROUNDABOUT FOR JUNCTION
St Edmundsbury Council revealed that a mini-roundabout was being planned for the problematic Cangle Junction in Haverhill.
The roundabout was to serve as an interim measure until Suffolk County Council came up with a larger scheme for the junction, one that could be a few years away.
Calls were also made for the zebra crossing near the junction to be replaced with a safer, pedestrian-controlled pelican crossing after a 75-year-old man was hit and critically hurt while walking across it.
BROTHERS REUNITED AFTER 33 YEARS
Haverhill resident Ronald Farnham made contact with his brother Robert for the first time in 33 years.
The pair had lost touch with each other and not met since Ronald’s wedding day in 1958.
Ronald was inspired to search for his brother after being involved in an exhibition called Farnhams Around the World. It led to him contacting Robert’s former employer who had an address on file for him.
A letter was passed on to Robert, who then called his brother out of the blue.
