In the last week, the stadium was broken into twice, with Suffolk police officers confirming it was investigating both incidents.

A Suffolk police spokeswoman said that officers had been made aware of the break-ins and were investigating.

A spokesman from the club added: “We can confirm there have been two incidents over the last week of intrusion at the stadium.

“The police are aware and are investigating.

“We have increased our security as a matter of course.”

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity or has any information which can aid police in their investigation to contact them on 101.
