Residents with the best plans for worst-case scenarios were recognised at an awards presentation in Lavenham on Friday.

Groups of volunteers from Bures, Monks Eleigh and seven other communities who came up with emergency plans for their area received starter packs with specialist tools, including torches, blankets and whistles.

The groups heard from speakers with emergency experience, including the Hatfield train crash and MP Tim Yeo, and swapped tips and ideas.
