Two men arrested on suspicion of murdering a woman in Bury St Edmunds have had their bail extended.

The suspects, who were aged 22 and 49, who were detained after the death of 38-year-old Tracey Hammond in Anselm Avenue had been due to answer bail today.

However Suffolk Constabulary has said the men have now been re-bailed until February 19, pending further enquiries by its major investigation team.
