Christopher Thompson, 35 and formerly of London Road, Ipswich was found dead by a dog walker yesterday at around 6.50am.

Today a 33-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman, both of no fixed abode, were arrested in the town on suspicion of his murder.

They are currently at Martlesham Police Investigation Centre where they will be quizzed by detectives.
