A 29-year-old woman has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder in connection with a shooting in Bury St Edmunds.

Police were called at 6.45pm on August 4 to reports that a man had been shot in the stomach at an address in Forum Court. The victim, aged in his thirties, was successfully treated in hospital for his injuries.

Officers today re-arrested Rebecca Deferia, of Carnation Way, Red Lodge, in connection with the shooting and she was brought into custody where she was re-interviewed before being charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

She is now being detained in custody overnight and will appear before Ipswich Magistrates Court tomorrow morning.

Officers made a number of arrests and five men have previously been charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Simon Webber, aged 31, of Sydenham Close, Bridgwater, Somerset; Frank Warren, aged 51, of Victoria Road, Dorchester; Andrew Seaton, aged 40, of Frome View, Maiden Newton, Dorchester; Paul Baker, aged 35, of Neils View, Maiden Newton, Dorchester, and 59-year-old Colin Deferia, of Battisford Road, Barking, Suffolk, have all entered not guilty pleas and they remain in custody pending a trial due to begin at Ipswich Crown Court on April 11, 2016.

A second woman, who is now 60 years old, who was arrested on August 5, remains on police bail until January 21, 2016.

John Williams has decided to carve a tree stump on Eastgate Street in Bury St Edmunds.

Not many people would give up 200 hours of their life and ten weeks of work free of charge, but that is exactly what one retired Suffolk teacher is doing after coming across an “ugly” tree stump near his house.
