Two men arrested after the death of a newborn baby in Ipswich have had their bail extended. 

The men, aged in their 30s, were arrested following the discovery of a body at Wilbury House in Norwich Road on Saturday, December 9 last year. 

Officers were called to the incident at about 12.35pm, but the baby was declared dead at the scene.

Both men, as well as a female aged in her teens, were arrested on suspicion of murder. 

The two men were due to answer bail on Tuesday, February 6. 

A spokesman for Suffolk police has now confirmed the men have been rebailed until Wednesday, March 6. 

The female has been released under investigation, pending further enquiries. 

A Home Office post-mortem examination took place on Tuesday, December 12 and was inconclusive, with further tests required.  

Residents in Ipswich spoke of their shock following the incident.

One person said: "What can you say? This is devastating.

"Whatever can you say? I’ve been born and bred in this town. I’ve never heard of anything like this."
