Officers have been stationed at heathland between Sutton and Hollesley, near to MoD Woodbridge, since last night.

Eyewitnesses have reported seeing forensic teams in the area, while a cordon remains in place around a patch of land.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said: “Officers are currently carrying out an investigation in Sutton.

“Police received a call yesterday afternoon, Tuesday, October 20, from a member of the public expressing a concern for an altered area of heathland that appeared to have been dug over some time ago.
