The female from Ipswich arrested by police on Sunday morning has now been released on bail until November 9, pending further enquiries.

Police would ask that anybody resident in the vicinity of Alexander Road who may have CCTV or any motorists who may have dash-cam footage captured around the relevant time above, to contact officers.
