At around 4.30am on Tuesday 15th March a 45-year-old man from the Brandon area was arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment. He was taken into custody at Bury St Edmunds Police Station and questioned before being released on police bail. He must return to Bury Police Station on 26th April.

Meanwhile, Officers are renewing their appeal to trace a woman was reported to be on the riverside and the boat in Brandon on Monday afternoon. The barge was moored near the Brandon Ram, and at some point during the afternoon the woman got onto the vessel, spoke to the occupants and took a ride along the river in the boat.
