Arrests Made At Ipswich Site Linked To Double Murder

Six people have been arrested after caravans were set on fire at a travellers' site linked to a double murder in Ipswich last night.

Emergency services were called to West Meadows site at around 10 o'clock  to reports that ``a number of properties'' were being damaged and two caravans had been set alight.

The disorder comes after two men were stabbed at the site and later died on Thursday.

A 17-year-old boy is due before Ipswich Youth Court later charged with murdering 32 year old Barry Street and 18 year old Nathan Oakley.

Police have told Heart a number of officers will remain on the site to offer reassurance to the community.

Those arrested for violent disorder are two men from Ipswich aged 31 and 22, a 19-year-old man from Wickford, a 23-year-old man from Barnsley, South Yorkshire and a teenage boy.

One 20 year old man from Wickford, Essex has also been detained on suspicion of causing criminal damage.

A horse that was injured on Sunday night was seen by a vet but died at the scene.

One man sustained slight injuries from a police dog while being arrested and was taken to hospital for assessment.
