A man has been detained by police after an arrest was carried out in a Suffolk village today.

A riot van and police cars were spotted in Cavendish near Sudbury this afternoon.

According to eyewitnesses, there was a heavy police presence in the village at around 2pm on Wednesday afternoon, April 10.

A man who works nearby said: “They had blocked off the road just after Water Lane.

“There was a riot van and a police car blocking the road.

“The cars were building up and it was causing a lot of traffic problems.
“There was still one police car there when I left at 5.15pm.”

Residents took to social media to describe what they had seen and voice their concerns, with some reporting seeing multiple police units in the area.

One said: “We just managed to get down Water Lane, but the main road from there to Pentlow Lane was blocked off by police vans ... Hope everything’s ok.”
