The ‘police pod’ will be present in the town centre where Brentgovel Street meets Risbygate Street, opposite The Grapes public house.

It will be staffed from 9pm to 4am tomorrow, to 9am to 5pm on Saturday and from midday on Sunday.

Police are hoping the pod will help generate new lines of inquiry, with people able to speak to investigating officers about what might have happened to Corrie.

Singer Cher shares Corrie appeal

Corrie’s family to re-trace his steps on anniversary of his disappearance

Detective Superintendent Katie Elliott said: “Our thoughts are with Corrie’s family and friends 12 months on from his disappearance.

“It is fair to say that a year on from him going missing, we never thought we would be in this position of not yet locating Corrie or establishing exactly what happened to him. We have always wanted to provide answers to Corrie’s family about what happened to him.

She added: “We would ask the public to call us if they have fresh information that may be of benefit to the investigation. We have deliberately placed the police pod on Brentgovel Street as we know this is the route Corrie took on that evening and hope our presence will jog someone’s memory.

“As we said in July the fact that Corrie wasn’t found at the landfill site during our extensive search remains bitterly disappointing to us. We had compelling information that directed us to this particular area of the landfill site.”

DS Elliott also said a detailed review of the investigation so far is being conducted by The East Midlands Special Operations Unit, to see whether there are any lines of inquiry that could lead to more information.

The force is also issuing CCTV stills of individuals that officers believe may have had some interaction with RAF serviceman on the night he went missing.

They would, however, like to stress that these people are not key witnesses, are not being treated as suspects, and have no direct link with Corrie.

Instead, police hope they might have information which could help find him.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Major Investigation Team at Suffolk police on 01473 782019 or 101.
