Armed police raided an address in the Whitton estate in Ipswich on Monday afternoon.

Witnesses saw several police cars and dog handlers arrive in Byron Road at around 2.30pm, with a Suffolk police spokesman confirming the operation was pre-planned.

The operation was in connection with an individual wanted in connection with domestic-related offences.

However, it is not clear if any arrests were made following the incident.

A Suffolk police spokesman said: “Armed officers from Suffolk police attended Byron Road in Ipswich this afternoon as part of a planned operation in connection with an individual wanted for domestic-related offences.

“There is no danger to the wider public and enquiries are continuing.”
