Two men have been arrested for trying to jump the fence and get into Latitude free of charge.

Police officers and the festival security team were alerted by a member of the public, who spotted the pair scaling the fence at Henham Park, near Southwold earlier today.

A spokeswoman for the force said a 31-year-old man and a 32-year-old man, both from London, are currently in custody at Martlesham Police Investigation Centre where they will be questioned by officers.

She said the pair have been arrested on suspicion of fraud.
