The BTP had previously said that the man had been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

A woman, who is also from Ipswich and in her 20s, sustained head and pelvic injuries.

Her injuries were described as serious, but not life-threatening.

She was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge for treatment.

A BTP spokesman said: “A 37-year-old man from Ipswich arrested on suspicion of aiding and abetting suicide has now been interviewed and released on police bail until Thursday, May 8 pending further enquiries. The victim remains in hospital in a stable condition.”
