Police were called to Burlington Road shortly after 5pm on Sunday by the ambulance service, who said they were treating the man after he had suffered a suspected cardiac arrest in his home, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said.

He said officers at the scene were then made aware of a theft that had taken place earlier inside his home. It is thought £20 was taken by someone the man knew.

After being treated by paramedics, the 61-year-old, who has not been identified, was airlifted to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

He remains in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

Meanwhile a 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft at around 7pm on Sunday.

He is being held in custody at the Martlesham Police Investigation Centre.
