POLICE are no longer treating the death of a man on the outskirts of Ipswich as suspicious.
An investigation swung into action yesterday morning after paramedics alerted police to the death at the travellers' site at West Meadows, near Asda.
A 999 call was received from a mobile telephone shortly after 9am saying that a man had suffered a cardiac arrest.
An ambulance crew attended the scene but the man lost his fight for life while paramedics were there. They subsequently called police.
The site was immediately sealed off and a police officer and traffic warden stood guard for much of the day monitoring residents entering and leaving the site.
The police helicopter circled over the area as detectives and uniformed officers began their investigations into what was initially being treated as an unexplained death.

The nine-and-a-half acre site was built in the 1980s to provide a permanent home for Ipswich gypsies.
