A man has been arrested for a third time on suspicion of murder following the death of Ipswich man Joe Pooley.

Mr Pooley, 22, was found around 10.30am on Monday, August 13, in the River Gipping near London Road in the town.

A post-mortem examination carried out on August 14 determined the likely cause of death was immersion in water.

He was previously arrested on October 2, 2018, and February 6 this year on suspicion of murder and released under investigation.

A 33-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman, both formerly from Ipswich, arrested on January 17 on suspicion of murder were bailed to February 12 and 14 respectively. A 28-year-old woman previously arrested on 2 October 2018 on suspicion of murder in connection with the incident, was released under investigation.
