POLICE today admitted they are baffled by reports of an unconscious woman being carried through a Suffolk village by a group of men.

Extensive searches have been made of the area surrounding Station Road, Bentley after passers by alerted the force to the potentially suspicious act, at 4.30pm on Tuesday.

But this has failed to reveal the identity of the woman or the men and police today said they are continuing to treat the incident as unexplained.

Detective Superintendent Andy Footer said: "There have been no reports of a missing person within the immediate counties, and there has been no-one admitted to hospital that would account for the whereabouts of the woman."
