Officers were carrying out a search at a property in Foxhall Road in connection with the ongoing murder probe launched by detectives last night.

Forensic vans were also seen in the area.

Police launched a murder investigation into the incident last night, more than a month after Mr Pooley was found dead in the River Gipping.

Officers are currently questioning three people in connection with his death, and enquiries into what happened are continuing.
