An arson investigation was launched after a bin fire started in a Suffolk play park on the evening of Halloween. 

Fire crews were called to The Pit Park in Sudbury, near Woodhall Close, at 7.51pm on Tuesday to reports of a fire in the open. 

Police also attended the scene at 7.58pm and found the fire service had already extinguished a fire that was started in a blue wheelie bin. 

A Suffolk police spokesman said an arson investigation was launched but, at this time, there have been no arrests. 

This comes as two teenagers were arrested elsewhere in Suffolk for throwing eggs at a police car on an otherwise "peaceful" Halloween evening.

The pair of teens were arrested following an incident of criminal damage and affray where eggs and "other items" were thrown at a police car in Lowestoft.

In the run-up to Halloween, two Sudbury parents also reported pumpkins were smashed outside of their homes. 

However, Suffolk police Contact and Control Room Inspector Ali Newman said: “Overall the evening passed off peacefully and the vast majority of people enjoyed themselves safely and sensibly.”
