Police were called to an address in Meridian Rise, near Cemetery Road, earlier this morning following a call from paramedics at 8.20am who had found the deceased woman, aged in her 40s, in the property.

The death is currently being treated as suspicious and a man, also aged in his 40s, has been arrested and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

A police cordon is in place at the property whilst officers carry out an investigation with officers starting to carry out house to house inquiries in the area.

Investigating officer, Detective Inspector Steve Corbett, said: “We remain in the early stages of our investigation and our enquiries remain ongoing.
