The statue on St Peter's Street was decorated along with nearby bollards and trees.

It was the idea of Sue Newbery, who runs a knitting shop on the road.

There's no chance of Lowestoft boxer Anthony Ogogo resting on his laurels after another convincing victory at weekend.

The 27-year-old's opponent Frane Radnic lasted just one round at the O2 Arena on Saturday, before his retirement extended Ogogo's professional record to 10 wins from 10 fights.

"The momentum is now starting to build," Ogogo said. "I'm hopefully boxing again in three weeks because the more I fight the better and sharper I'll become. It's going to be a cracking journey."

Daughter of Tunisia victim gains 'hope' from fundraising

The daughter of a Lowestoft man killed in a Tunisian terror attack says fundraising in her father's name has helped bring something "positive" from the tragedy.

Stuart Cullen was one of 38 tourists killed on a beach in Sousse a year ago.

His family have so far raised more than £12,000 for a meningitis charity and plan to continue their efforts, with his daughter Emma singing at an event at the King Alfred pub, in Carlton Colville, on 9 July.

"My dad was at my first ever gig and he went to every single gig from then on," she said. "He was always so enthusiastic when I sung.

"Although it will always be a horrendous anniversary and something no-one ever looks forward to, we would like there also to be something positive to look on and some hope."

If the plan is backed by all the other councils in Norfolk and Suffolk, the government has pledged £30m over five years to help with housing need in Norwich and Ipswich.

Pigs Gone Wild: Des-pig-able Me

Richard Haugh

BBC News

Boarba Fett, Elvis Porksley, Captain Pigwash... there's a steady flow of puns on the Pigs Gone Wild trail.

One of the less obvious, and perhaps tenuous, ones is a tribute to the Minions... titled The Swinions.

Can you name the pigs from the tails?

The Wildlife Gadget Man has become a bit of a local celebrity over the past couple of years, with his home set up of cameras giving even Springwatch a run for its money.

But yesterday he ventured out into Ipswich and captured a more static type of wildlife.

Piggie problems

BBC News

In the space of 24 hours, the 69 pigs (39 full-size and 30 small ones) have made a big difference to Ipswich, adding a welcome splash of colour and creativity.

However, the launch has not been without its issues. Due to "technical difficulties", the app which is advertised on the base of each of the pigs and adds a way of digitally recording which ones people have visited, is not yet available.

An accompanying sticker book is also being released today, but the stickers themselves are not quite ready. 

They are due to be given away with copies of the Ipswich Star and East Anglian Daily Times.

Ed Sheer Ham... the movie

Richard Haugh

Getting a close up look of the Ed Sheeran pig today I was really impressed with the small details, which include the singer's tattoos and guitar.

On my return to the office it was good to take a look at this video, which shows how artist Martin J Wall created Ed Sheer Ham.

After the 10-week Pigs Gone Wild extravaganza the large pig sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for St Elizabeth Hospice which improves life for people living with a progressive illness.

Is that a Blackburn kit?

Richard Haugh

BBC News

It's an interesting choice of design for Porkman Road, the pig sitting outside Ipswich Town's ground.

The pig is wearing the club's home kit on one side, and the away strip on the other.

I can see how this is a good way of showing the full range of replica products available in the club shop... but some might say it looks like the pig is wearing a Blackburn kit.

Euro 2016: Butcher backs Sterling recall

Brenner Woolley

BBC Radio Suffolk sport

Just before we return to Pigs Gone Wild art trail... former Ipswich and England defender Terry Butcher says he would be happy to see Raheem Sterling back in the England team for tonight's game against Iceland.

After his widely criticised performance in the group stage win over Wales, the Manchester City winger is now being tipped as a surprise starter in Nice.

"Confidence was the only thing that was missing, because he has the pace and skill to get around people and get into the box," Butcher said. 

"He can draw fouls and penalties and England need someone like that."

Suffolk boxer Anthony Ogogo made it 10 wins from 10 professional fights as he brushed aside Frane Radnic at the O2 Arena on Saturday night.

The Croatian retired at the end of the first round, leaving the Lowestoft man a little disappointed that the fight didn't go on longer.

"I wanted to go in there and really make a statement," said Ogogo. "I would've really got a hold of him in the next round, but it was great to be back in the ring and have my second fight in four weeks."

A piggy homage to cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins neatly takes us to sport... and Newmarket's Goldie Sayers missed out on a 12th British Javelin title yesterday in Birmingham.

The 33-year-old finished second, behind Jo Blair, who threw a personal best of 57.44 metres.

Sayers will now have to produce a throw of 62 metres or more before 12 July, in order to qualify for the Olympics in Rio.

Children are loving the Pigs Gone Wild sculptures.

Sir Bradley Piggins
BBC

I've just been out on my bike to take some photos of the pigs, and was struck by how often I heard young children shouting a version of the word 'pig' in pure excitement.

The 39 larger than life-size sculptures, plus 30 smaller ones, are spread out around town and provide a good way of getting to visit landmarks including Christchurch Park and the football ground.

I wonder how interaction with the pigs will change in the evening, when people on a night out are added to the mix.

Pigs Gone Wild: And that makes 39...

Pig gets Twitter account

It's too early to say if the pig will express its views on Brexit and the like... or if it's just a promotional tool:

The Sailmakers shopping centre is milking the unveiling of the two final sculptures on the Pigs Gone Wild trail.

The other pigs were released onto the streets yesterday morning, but a tribute to Tim Peake and 'Pigs Can Fly' are due to be unveiled at 11:00.

Euro 2016: England need to be ruthless - Terry Butcher

Brenner Woolley

Former Ipswich Town defender Terry Butcher believes England should "grind Iceland into the dust" when the two teams meet at Euro 2016 tonight.

Butcher has been speaking to BBC Radio Five Live ahead of the last-16 clash in Nice (kick-off 20.00).

"It's not about pretty performances and dominating possession. It's about putting the ball in the back of the Iceland net. Just get stuck into them early on, let them know they're in a big game and be ruthless."

Wishful thinking perhaps, but ex-Ipswich Town defender Hermann Hreidarsson believes his country Iceland will beat England at Euro 2016 tonight.

The two teams meet in Nice, with a quarter-final against hosts France at stake.

Without a hint of bias Hreidarsson told BBC Suffolk: "It'll be a 1-1 draw and we will win on penalties."

Suffolk's cricketers were left twiddling their thumbs after the heavens opened over Bury St Edmunds yesterday.

There wasn't a ball bowled in the first ever East T20 because of a waterlogged pitch.

Suffolk's next match is a three-day Minor Counties Championship fixture against Cambridgeshire, starting at Copdock on Sunday 3 July.

Weather: Cloudy start, sunny spells... dry overnight

Georgina Burnett

BBC Weather

Today, a rather cloudy start with outbreaks of rain. However, this will quickly clear with the cloud breaking and sunny spells developing. The rest of the day will remain dry, and with light winds it will feel pleasantly warm in the sunshine with highs of 19C (66F).

Tonight, a dry end to the day with some evening sunshine. Overnight, it will remain dry, with clear spells developing and light winds with lows of 14C (57F).

People 'just love' the Ipswich pigs

Norman Lloyd, who is overseeing the Pigs Gone Wild event, says the trail will hopefully raise £100,000 for St Elizabeth Hospice while "brightening up the whole of Ipswich".

After more than a year of planning, Mr Lloyd says he's been overwhelmed by the initial reaction to the pigs' arrival on the streets of Ipswich.

"People are seeing the pigs and are smiling," he said.

"Last night I was down the waterfront and the amount of people who were interacting with the pigs... they just love them."

Ed Sheer Ham the big draw of the pig trail

Richard Haugh

BBC News

It's been a tough few months for both the fans of Ed Sheeran and the media who reported on his every move.

In December, the singer announced he was taking a break from social media, and he's kept a low profile ever since.

But now.... Sheeran fans can rejoice. The singer has been recreated in pig form and is sat patiently waiting for selfies on Ipswich Waterfront.

Pigs Gone Wild launches in Ipswich

The Pigs Gone Wild art trail has been more than a year in planning, and sees 69 painted sculptures placed around the town. Thirty-nine "larger than life" pigs have been painted by artists, with 30 "juniors" painted by local schools.

Each pig has been sponsored and at the end of the 10 weeks will be auctioned off with the money going to St Elizabeth Hospice.

The designs for the pigs are impressively varied. Some bear likenesses to famous figures, while others help answer some of life's big questions.

Such as, what would it look like if a pig mated with a hedgehog?

Good morning and welcome to Local Live for Suffolk, which today has a pig-like look about it.

Piggy Stardust

In the early hours of yesterday morning, 69 pigs took up residence in the town centre - bringing a splash of colour and some cringeworthy puns with them.

Piggy Stardust, Sir Bradley Piggins, Ed Sheer Ham.... I found part of the fun is trying to guess the name of the pig before reading the accompanying name tag.

Anyway, we'll start the day by meeting some of the town's new inhabitants before taking a look at the rest of the county's news, sport, travel and weather until 18:00 tonight.
