This newspaper was informed at 8pm on Saturday night that an area around the shops in Ellenbrook Road had been cordoned off.

Footage showed a large police presence in the area, while another video was later sent to the news desk showing a helicopter hovering above Chantry.

Suffolk Constabulary last night told reporters that a male had been injured and taken to hospital, but did not reveal the nature of the incident, the extent of his injuries were not known, or whether any arrests had been made.
