As reported on The Evening Star's website yesterday, a 25-year-old man from Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire was arrested and taken to Ipswich police station yesterday where he was questioned about a robbery in Nacton Road.

The man is the second to be arrested in connection with the raid on a Securicor van on November 18 last year.

Three men are believed to have been involved in the gunpoint hold-up outside Lloyds TSB.

A 40-year-old man from Norwich was arrested in connection with the attack in January and has also been released on police bail.

A second raid happened at the bank 12 weeks later on February 10, in which two men held up a Securicor van and a guard was struck with the butt of a gun.
