Seaside town relief road opened
A 30m relief road, named after a fisherman who was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross during World War I, has opened in a Suffolk town.

Tom Crisp Way in Lowestoft, which opened on Tuesday ahead of schedule, is designed to take traffic away from London Road South and the seafront.

Tom Crisp was skipper of armed fishing smack, the Nelson, and died in a battle with a German submarine in 1917.

His granddaughter, Doreen Hague, unveiled the new road.

It was officially opened by Lord Tollemache and Suffolk County Councillor Guy McGregor.
