A SUFFOLK parish council chairman has today been cautioned following allegations that he threatened to kill another man.

Albert Tiller, of Jays Croft Road, Rendlesham, was arrested by police in connection with the alleged offence, which happened last Monday.

Officers today spoke with Tiller when he returned to Woodbridge police station and offered him the chance to accept a caution in relation to the complaint.

Tiller chose to accept the caution. The alternative would have been to let the matter go to court.

Tiller had previously been questioned at Woodbridge police station before being released on bail which he answered today. He was arrested immediately after the complaint was made last week.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: "A 59-year-old Rendlesham man has been cautioned under section five of the public order act following an incident in Jays Croft Road, Rendlesham on May 25."
