Bury St Edmunds 'explosion' sound likely to be A14 vehicle fire
Explosion sounds heard in Bury St Edmunds overnight are likely to relate to a vehicle fire, Suffolk Constabulary has said.
Police received calls from Mildenhall Estate in Bury around 4am this morning (Thursday, May 16) to reports of 'very loud explosions'.
A spokesman from the force said: "The police attended. From what we understand, there was a fire on the A14 involving a lorry. Two of the lorry's inner tyres blew out and we think that caused the explosion sound."
