Detectives investigating a double stabbing in Ipswich have been granted further time to question a 17-year-old boy from Ipswich who was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward and are particularly keen to hear from anyone driving past the West Meadows area yesterday with a dash cam fitted to their vehicle.

Police were called just after 1.15pm yesterday, Thursday December 8, to reports that a man in his 30s had been stabbed at West Meadows travellers’ site.

He had collapsed outside the site’s entrance and was rushed to Ipswich Hospital by ambulance.

At 1.30pm, another man in his late teens was brought to the Hospital in a car having sustained suspected stab wounds.

Despite being treated at the hospital, both men died a short time later.

Post mortem examinations are due to take place on both victims tomorrow. Both are yet to be formally identified.
