DETECTIVES have arrested a 33-year-man on suspicion of murder after an 18-year-old woman's body was discovered in Pettistree today.

Police were called to an address in the village, near Woodbridge, after they were alerted to concerns for the teenager's welfare.

When they arrived around 2pm they discovered her body.

Although a post mortem is still to take place to determine cause of death, Simon Stevens, spokesman for Suffolk police, said officers were treating the woman's death as a murder inquiry.

The 33-year-old man was subsequently arrested in Winterton, near Great Yarmouth, by Norfolk police. He was taken to the town's police station and is expected to be transferred to Suffolk for questioning.
