POLICE cordons are currently blocking the turn off to Levington from the Old Felixstowe Road following the discovery of the two bodies.

A series of police officers have been stationed at the perimeter of a field, on the right hand side as you leave Ipswich.

Behind that field, a second cordon is visible where police cars and officers are also stationed.

The police helicopter is hovering overhead.

It's very dark and there appears to be a wooded area beyond the field.

The old A45 is a well-used “back road” for people travelling between Ipswich and Felixstowe - and used as a route for drivers heading for Levington marina.

The fields to the left of the main road are used for arable farming and border the busy A14 all the way through to the link road to Trimley.

On the right of the road is woodland, including a plantation, which borders the main Ipswich to Felixstowe railway line.

Turning on to the road from Ipswich, about 250 yards towards Felixstowe, is a lay-by which will be of huge interest to police. This is used by courting couples, dog walkers and lorry driver who park up overnight, having left the A14 at the Trimley link road.

At the Levington village turn off the fields next to the railway line are used horse owners.

Next to the bridge, recently renovated by Network Rail, is another lay-by, used by truckers and highways vehicles. A hedge which shielded the road from the lay-by has recently been removed by council officials.
