Suffolk police have issued a further appeal for witnesses following a ram raid in Lavenham in the early hours of Thursday morning.

“We are interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen or heard any suspicious activity in or around the area at 1.15am on Thursday, December 21.

“One of the offenders is described as a white male, 5’10” tall, medium build and speaking with an English accent. He is described as wearing a dark top, light grey or white trousers and a black balaclava and was reported to have left the scene in the direction of Water Street in Lavenham.”
