A 54-year-old man arrested on suspicion of arson following a fire at a home at Mendlesham Green in the early hours of Sunday morning has been released on bail.

Police were contacted by the fire service around 12.50am on June 1, to reports that the property was on fire but that no one appeared to have been inside.

Officers attended and began enquiries and at around 3.30am the 54-year-old man, from the Mendlesham area, was arrested in connection with the fire.

He was taken to the Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning and has since been released on bail until July 9.

Enquiries are continuing into the fire and police are asking anyone who may have been in the area between 10pm on Saturday and 3am on Sunday to come forward if they saw anything that may help the investigation.
