Police have also renewed their appeal for information from witnesses to the devastating blaze at the Tarantella Hotel in Melford Road, Sudbury, which started in the early hours of January 25.

Investigators believe the fire was started deliberately in at least two different areas of the building.

A police spokeswoman confirmed they were looking at council CCTV images but declined to say what the footage was of.

She added detectives were also going through witness statements from people who had come forward with information.

She said: “It is an ongoing arson inquiry. Detectives are now looking at CCTV to see if it might help. We are also appealing for anyone with information who we haven't spoken to yet to come forward.”
