One resident who lives in Tudor Place - which is accommodation for the over 55s - said she saw about 40 people coming from the rear of the club.

“They were swearing and there were groups of them and there was a couple of girls who I thought were going to have a fight. There was a big row between the two of them and the blokes were shouting. I was scared and frightened.”

Another resident said: “I looked out the window and saw a crowd of people arguing. I just thought do not get involved.”

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said she believed the revellers were leaving the club at the time of the alleged incident and that there would have been a lot of people in the area at the time.

Anyone who can help police with their inquires can call CID on 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.
