A member of the public called Suffolk Constabulary around 3.30am and reported seeing one or two men causing trouble in Preston Drive, Ipswich.

The suspects were also seen throwing things at houses in the location, known as The Crofts.

“We are looking into whether the suspects were following a milk cart on his round in that area,” a police spokeswoman said.
