Debenham Library Read-in 19th March

Local county councillor Eddy Alcott briefly appeared at the event. When local teenagers challenged him to sign the petition to Save Suffolk's Libraries he refused. He looked very uncomfortable but claimed to the BBC and local people that he wanted to see the library kept open. He quickly left interestingly before local MP Dan Poulter arrived.

Suffolk Libraries petition
Dr Poulter has already raised the issue of Ms Hill's salary in parliament calling on her to take a pay cut and was critical of the County Council for not dealing with this issue. He also promised to continue to support local libraries having previously attended a meeting at Stradbroke and raised the issue with ministers.
The marathon read-in is still continuing all night and finishes at 4pm on Sunday.
